Leadership is perception. There is intrinsic value in finding out how you are perceived and received by people that view you from different perspectives - whether above you, beside you, or below you. A big piece of this is seeing if how you intend to come across is actually how you are coming across, and to learn your blind spots. In this episode, Caneel will guide you through 360 reviews and other forms of leadership feedback and introduce you to a mindset of curiosity as we underscore the importance of listening especially in the environment that we currently are in. Why is feedback such an important process for leaders to go through? What is a 360? Why are they valuable? How do we interpret feedback and incorporate it into positive changes? After this episode, you will have a deeper appreciation and understanding of feedback and its powerful role in growth and leadership, as well as its often underleveraged ability to accelerate a leader’s performance.
