How to Get Honest Feedback

You’d like to get some good and honest feedback from someone on an idea, a draft or a performance? But how would you go about it?

Organisational psychologist Adam Grant asks for a score from 0-10.

He explains:

No one ever says 10. Then I ask how I can get closer to a 10. 

It motivates them to start coaching me—and motivates me to be coachable. I want to learn how to close the gap.”

So next time you’re looking for feedback, you might like to give this strategy a try. And if you do try it out, try and remember to tell me about it!
