The One Thing 337: How to Receive Feedback as a Gospel Worker

It's one thing getting feedback, but what about receiving and looking for feedback. We continue our series on feedback. In this episode we look at

  • Look for feedback means you will be more open to receiving it.
  • As a leader you create a culture of feedback when you ask for it.
  • Keep mind who you are asking feedback from: their role, experience and authority.
  • When receiving feedback notice your own emotional state and ask for time to revisit the conversation if needed.
  • Dig into specifics, remember your SBI from previous episodes
  • When you receive feedback you don't agree with, process it with people you trust about it.

2. “What action are you supposed to take?”
3. “What, if anything, made you tune out?”
