Ep #123: How Bad Feedback is Killing Your Career

As a corporate badass, I know you’re already aware of how important soliciting feedback is.

But chances are, you’re receiving some lousy, career-killing advice right now – and you don’t even know it.

Here’s the thing:

You’re going to get a lot of feedback over the course of your career, about all kinds of things, and from all kinds of people.

And the ability to solicit golden nuggets of feedback – while avoiding the types of feedback that are simply distractions or, worse, career landmines – is going to become increasingly important as you make your way to the top of your organization.

So in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to give you some super practical shifts you need to make in order to receive BETTER feedback.

And by better, I’m not talking about sunshine and roses feedback, right?

I’m talking about real, honest feedback that you can use to transform your career and get you the promotion you want.

Plus, I’m going to show you how to spot and shut-out bad feedback so you never get stuck in your career again.

Let’s get started.
