Give yourself feedback

Most leaders do not give themselves feedback. To be able to give feedback to others, a great start is actually to give feedback to yourself.

Why is this important?

• It builds on your self-awareness.

• It allows you to develop your skills and effectiveness at work.

• It makes you feel good.

Answer these questions when you give yourself feedback at the end of the day.

• What one thing did I do well today?

• Why was this a good thing? Maybe it’s in line with who you want to be or your values and principles.

• How can I keep doing these things?


Write it down somewhere or just think it through.

Here’s a tip. Some people like to use their own name or say ‘you’ when they give feedback to themselves. It can actually help you see yourself from the outside.

Good luck!
