What do you do when no one gives you actionable and useful feedback? That was the situation of our guest, an aerospace engineer, for many years. And while he was able to move within his company, he felt that he was missing information that could explain his standing there and ensure his future success.
Ella Bell, an expert in interpersonal communication and organizational behavior, shares creative ways to capture people’s perspectives on your performance and potential. He also offers advice on how to make sense of the feedback you receive. It can be especially difficult when you don’t agree with what someone says or when their comments don’t align with your priorities. We discuss both situations and provide suggestions on how to respond.
Ella Bell is a professor at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business
