I do not. I consider myself a life-long learner. And I gravitate to other "works in progress."
This week I had the honor of training a dozen speakers in preparation for their company's national sales meeting. Each person walked in prepared, engaged and genuinely open to hearing feedback. Can you imagine how much better prepared they left that room? They are now able to incorporate the audience's perspective BEFORE the fact. Instead of survey data hitting them like a ton of bricks after it's too late, they had the opportunity to know how their presentations would be received and ensure they hit the mark.
See? It might sound strange, but feedback IS a gift!
The most important ingredient in the success of this week was: Willingness. You have to be willing to:
It takes a lot of courage to make the journey and a lot of confidence to take a guide, in fact, only the strongest climbers do :).
Are you willing?
