The Last Lecture – Leadership Lesson 4

I found the Randy Pausch Last Lecture video and book very uplifting and inspiring – full of life and leadership lessons. If you haven’t seen the video, you can see it here … and you can get the book here.

Feedback is Vital to Growth

For an individual and a company to grow, everyone needs feedback on their performance – good or bad.

You can’t improve if you don’t have someone objectively evaluating your performance. And if don’t improve, your contribution to the organizations success is minimized.

Some managers / leaders have a hard time delivering feedback to their employees – why I don’t know. They may tell you the good or soft stuff, but totally shy away from telling you about the opportunities for you to improve – the hard stuff.

If you are cheating others by not giving honest constructive feedback – like Randy Pausch received from Coach Graham pg. 36 – you should begin now. Find a way to deliver the important message of “here’s what you need to work on to get better” … as it is vital to the growth of the individual and the company.
