Thought for the Week - 5/26/09

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd. -- Voltaire


As servant leaders, we must be continuously asking ourselves how we are doing as a leader/supervisor. We need to ask ourselves how we can be better at what we do. We need to identify what changes we need to make in order to better serve both our staff and our organization. At Rising Sun, we like to ask ourselves: “How would I like to have me as a leader/supervisor?”

There are also a number of ways in which to seek feedback from others. Most obviously, we can simply ask them directly.

When was the last time you met with our staff, either one-on-one or in groups, and ask them for feedback on how well we are meeting their needs?

When was the last time you asked them if there is anything else you could be doing to better support their needs?

When was the last time you asked them for feedback on what they would do differently if they were the leader/supervisor?
