Nearly 60% of employees said they would like feedback from their bosses on a daily or weekly basis. That number jumps to 72% of employees under age 30. Chances are you aren’t getting feedback that often, so how do you ask for it — and then what do you do?
Scheduling regular conversations with your boss to specifically get feedback is the very best approach. It can be a weekly 15-minute session on one project, or a longer discussion if you need help solving a problem.
During those sessions, listen carefully and take notes. Process what you learned and what action items are needed, then follow up with an email outlining your plan. This gives your boss a chance to confirm you’re on the same page — and that you are taking the information seriously.
Learning how to receive and act on constructive feedback is essential when daring to be deliberate and when leveling up your career.
