  • Three Steps:
    1.  PICK ONE: Pick #1 behavior you most want to change and want to get suggestions from others about to improve
    2.  ASK & LISTEN – ASK: “I’m focused on doing a better job of (insert focus area here).  Do you have any ideas or suggestions for me?”   LISTEN to EVERY suggestion without defensiveness or push back. GOAL:-Get as many ideas as you can.
    3.  FOLLOW UP- determine top themes – use them as your development and in a coaching process (create a Dashboard top 3 to 5 priorities) See more about the Dashboard Podcast #20   Also follow up by reporting back to the people who gave you feedback – what you’re working on.
