If you plan to grow, at some point, you’re going to need an outside perspective. Getting feedback can threaten our ego. Giving feedback can threaten someone else’s. For something so critical, handling it well is remarkably elusive.
Let’s talk about feedback.

How to properly serve a sh*t sandwich

"Honestly, I don't like it"
Adam Grant
When people ask for your feedback, it's a mark of respect. They value your knowledge, skill, or taste.

When they don't hesitate to give you feedback, it's a sign of trust. They have faith that you'll take it as an opportunity to grow, not a threat to your ego.
