Zenger Folkman Leadership Podcast Get answers to today’s toughest leadership and development problems from thought leaders Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman!

We are often asked, “What is the one thing a person ought to do to be a better leader and have a more successful career?”

While it is difficult to narrow down the list to just one thing, there is one that seems to surface over and over again in our research. That one thing is having the ability to ask for and respond to feedback from others. When we look at 360 survey data we can see an absolute correlation between the ability to ask for feedback and the overall effectiveness of leaders.

In a new study we have been conducting, we have also discovered that employees want feedback. Positive feedback is welcome—but they also want the negative or corrective feedback most leaders are hesitant to give. Employees want it, Leaders hate to give it.

In this episode, Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman explore this fascinating topic. They’ll share new research about both asking for and giving feedback, and you will learn how to get better at doing both!

Unequivocally, the ability to GIVE feedback and the ability to RECEIVE feedback are essential to being an effective leader today.

Complimentary Feedback Assessment: Participate in our Feedback Practices & Perceptions Assessment at no cost. This self-assessment will measure your desire for giving and receiving positive and negative feedback. It also measures your overall feelings of self-confidence, since that trait correlates strongly with the desire to give and receive feedback.
