A couple of months ago we posted a blog about confronting people in a positive way, otherwise known as giving feedback. But what about when you are the one who is getting the feedback?
Being able to accept feedback is an important component of being a positive league member. Next time someone in your leagues asks if they can give you some feedback, try the following.
This list is taken directly from the book The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations by James Kouzes and Barry Posner. Our two sense are added in orange :)
We are offering these tips for when someone in your league gives you feedback (or constructively confronts you) about your behavior that has broken the group norms or is otherwise detrimental to your organization. But practicing these actions when given feedback on your skating skills or team performance will also help to make you a coachable athlete.
