Don’t just ask for feedback. Notice it.

Many companies and organizations have a feedback system by which people provide direct and actionable information that can be used to better the organization. The problem is that this system of feedback can atrophy one’s skill at being aware, of noticing. The reality is that feedback is everything that happens throughout the organization every day. From the raised eyebrows to body language to the bottom line, everything is feedback.

In addition, a system of feedback can cause you to believe that you only get feedback when you formally ask for it. The reality is, you’re getting feedback all the time, every second, of every day.

So, don’t just ask for feedback. Notice it.
