Unravelling the Path to Personal Growth

Shift Your Mindset from Expecting Recognition to Seeking Feedback

Do you feel like you’re constantly doing great work but no one seems to notice? Do you find yourself resenting others who are skilled at getting noticed while you’re left in the shadows? It’s time to shift your mindset from expecting recognition to seeking feedback.

The belief that great work should speak for itself is an excuse for not advocating for yourself. Instead, create a clear vision for the future and seek feedback to help you get there. Here’s how:

  1. Know where you want to go. Create your criteria for saying ‘yes’ to opportunities or a reason for saying ‘no’. This will help you think more clearly about your future and feel more confident and prepared.
  2. Seek feedback. Feedback is critical to growth, but it’s only useful if it’s safe to give and receive. Build an Agile mindset to create environments where feedback is welcomed and not seen as a threat.
  3. Embrace growth. Feedback can be uncomfortable, but it’s necessary for growth. Embrace the opportunity to learn and improve, and don’t let fear hold you back.

By shifting your mindset from expecting recognition to seeking feedback, you’ll not only be able to grow and improve but you’ll also be seen as a serious player in your organization. Don’t let the fear of advocating for yourself hold you back from achieving your career goals.
