There is a place in-between and when you receive feedback like this you know it, it hits home. This kind of feedback is direct and challenging, and, is deeply rooted in a place of care. Get all the tips you need for providing effective feedback - from @kristinconstable in her latest blog post. Link in profile.
Feedback is about both giving and receiving. What feedback can you ask for from your team members today?
As we are on the feedback bandwagon this week, we asked our very own leadership coach, Ashley Treleaven what was one piece of feedback that she received that transformed her as a leader? … her response... “During my early days in leadership, I was given the feedback that I was coming across short and cold to some of our team members. This was hard to hear because I knew this did not fundamentally align with my desire to be of support and service to others. However, I knew I also loved moving quickly to achieve results. This was the first time I became aware that my need to achieve could outshine my care. From that point on I became acutely aware of how my actions may be perceived and I work daily to keep these two areas in balance. Feedback is a gift, and a powerful skill in anyone’s leadership journey. We love equipping leaders with these skills.

Understand your ‘why’ and you can overcome any ‘how’. Why do you do what you do? As a whole life leader understanding this is important. In fact, Abraham Maslow, in his famous hierarchy of needs, would say understanding this is a fundamental human desire. The desire to self-actualize is in our nature. This is tenet 6 of Whole Life Leadership. Learn more about this and the other 7 tenets of Whole Life Leadership in this week’s Winning Academy Youtube video.

It’s important for us as leadership coaches & trainers to model the principles we teach. One of those principles is getting crystal clear on your personal values so you can effectively lead yourself. For leadership coach, Ashley Treleaven, this has taken on deeper meaning over the past year as she begun on of her most important roles of all - motherhood. Ashley lives her values of family and connection everyday by creating a life and career with her family at the center. This principle is a critical step in becoming the leader you strive to be. First effectively lead yourself, and the rest will follow. Are your leaders in tune with their values? Learn more about our Personal Legacy Program on The Winning Academy website. Link in bio ☝🏽✨☝🏽
When do you perform at your best? One of the tenets of Whole Life Leadership is that we perform at our best when all aspects of our lives are in integrity and in perfect working order. In order for us to thrive as leaders, we need to be thriving as whole humans first.
