Continuing to Develop > Get Ongoing Feedback

Get Ongoing Feedback

We can’t stress enough the importance of feedback. Seeking ongoing feedback to support the work that you are doing toward your development goals is critical. This information from others can help illuminate the blind spots about your own behaviors, and it can also help communicate which behaviors make you the most effective. Even if you identified the goal of taking more initiative ten years ago, you should still be actively concerned about where you are in the progress of that goal.

Just as there are a variety of ways you can go about working on your goals, ongoing feedback can be obtained in several ways. You can ask colleagues to provide you with informal feedback when they notice that you are either improving on your targeted behaviors or straying from them. Similarly, you can ask someone to give you feedback immediately after a situation where you practiced your new behaviors. Another route would be to use follow-up assessments using 360-degree instruments related to the behaviors you are trying to change. You may find other methods that work better for you. The main thing is to set up some type of process that will allow you to get feedback from others on a periodic basis. (See the Ideas Into Action Guidebook: Ongoing Feedback: How to Get It, How to Use It; CCL, 1998.)
