If you want to be more successful in helping others succeed, regardless of the source or sources of your coaching, you need to clearly understand this master key.
If you want to take advantage of and be open to any coaching or feedback you receive, you must understand this key as well.
The master key to successful feedback is intent.
Stated simply, when our intent is clear and pure; when we really are giving feedback and coaching with the very best for the other person in mind, it will be more successful. And if our purposes are vindictive, punitive, meant to “fix” someone, or come from our frustration or anger it will be less successful.
In other words, coaching shouldn’t be about us, but about the other person and their success.
Since we have all received much coaching and feedback in our lives, we know this is true. When we sense that the feedback we are receiving is valuable and comes from a perspective of truly wanting us to improve, we are more open to hearing and applying it.
All said and done , it’s you who got to choose if there is someone’s life you would alter, just a little, in a good way.
