Feedback from the cheap seats!
I used to hold a keynote on stage and only saw the faces looking at me critically – with small eyes and forehead frowned. And I even did not do in consciously. It just happended. In addition I took every feedback very personally and felt hurt.
Then I participated in a dare-to-lead training developed by Brene Brown) and learned something very important for female leaders who are standing in the arena every day
👉 There is a difference between feedeback from people who have been there before and feedback from people being in a “cheap seat”.
Important feedback for female leaders and everybody being out there in the arena?
Quote from Theodore Roosevelt:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
If you want to learn how be a great female leader standing in the arena with confidence, clarity and focus – let me know and book a free exploration call! I am looking forward to hearing from you.
