This #thankyouthursday, I am grateful for honest feedback.
Yesterday a colleague essentially told me, “something you said made me uncomfortable.”
It was not fun to receive that honest feedback, but, wow, am I grateful for it.
I mean, I doubt it was super easy for that person to tell me about their discomfort. Which means our relationship is strong enough that they were willing to say something hard.
My colleague trusted me to listen. They believed I was capable of hearing and respecting their perspective. And they gifted me with the chance to reflect on my words and consider different actions.
That’s all really good stuff.
Tough conversations are, well…tough. But when they include honest feedback, they are also of great value.
Love > fear,
