Smart Leaders Seek and Listen to These 3 Voices

The higher a leader gets in an organization, the harder it is to get authentic feedback.  My experience suggests that this is a very true statement and that the problem isn’t isolated to senior executives.  It can appear from the very moment you take your first formal leadership role.

To mitigate this challenge, I suggest that you seek out, listen to, and learn from 3 key voices.  Truly listening to these voices requires a strong dose of humility, maturity, and openness; however, allowing them to exist creates both short and long-term benefits.

    Good morning. I like the three voices tool but the word Encouragement is mis-spelled. I don’t want to share it like that. Can you correct it and re-post?

      Thank you for pointing out the misspelling. We have fixed it and reposted. Enjoy!
