Feedback is the cornerstone of my career’s success. I’ve sought it, received it and provided it regularly from the moment I signed my first offer letter. It takes a special skill set to deliver tough feedback, and a stronger one to hear it, digest it and learn from it. Having worked with athletes and attorneys for over two decades, I’ve witnessed professionals at the peak of their career excel beyond their perceived limits. I’ve also seen them stumble and fall — hard. In the majority of such cases, it’s due to a lack of self-awareness and inability to internalize feedback.
