Soliciting Upward/Chutzpah Feedback

Are you lacking upward feedback?

  • An employee told you, one-on-one, that she thinks you’re making a mistake in your decision or approach to a problem.
  • An employee told you, one-on-one, that you should not have done something you did in a meeting.
  • During a session discussing your roadmap, someone spoke up to question the reasoning behind the decision and the prioritization?
  • Someone came up with a different approach or initiative and tried to make their case for it.
  • You were challenged publicly about conformance to the company’s values (e.g., “we state Innovation as a value but work in crunch mode for months on end without the ability to try anything new”).
  • Someone questioned a past decision during a retrospective and the implementation of the lessons learned.
