Fly the Feedback Flag

Would you take feedback from someone you don’t respect?

Probably not.

Just like you wouldn’t take advice from anyone who doesn’t have the credibility to be respected. So those who provide a view about your performance, your actions, your intent, had better be well-regarded by me to take any notice.

Otherwise it’s so hard to acknowledge your contribution.

I don’t feel so blinded and lacking in self-awareness that I’ll still probably listen to the advice to see if it might apply – but generally you had better be qualified in what you advising.

Otherwise, I couldn’t really be less interested in your feedback.
