Take Criticism like a Leader - the LEARN MethodMar 08, 2023
As a nonprofit leader, how often do you get suggestions?
Ya, know they usually start out with, you should, or it would be nice if, or if we could just…super annoying right?
I used to get triggered by this feedback because it would make me feel defensive like they were calling out something I should have already done.
Or it would make me feel overwhelmed, like yea that is a great idea how about you load it onto the towering wheelbarrow of other good ideas Im struggling to manage?
But as I have grown in my leadership capacity I have found a way to become excited by these suggestions, or even criticisms and it allows me to address people’s concerns while not taking on much of any work.
I use a little method called the LEARN Method and want to share it with you today.
Grab the LEARN method handout here, put it on your wall, and try to come at these suggestions, criticisms, and feedback like a boss!
