That ignorance of honest self-awareness fuels many of my conflicts or at least bad feelings with others. It allows me to tell instead of listen, assume instead of asking and miss a chance to learn something.

We hear that people tend to leave their boss, not their job. A prideful leader is likely a big part of that sad decision.

Even one well-placed bit of feedback with positive action can:

  • reduce a prideful heart and increase joy.
  • increase trust with family, friends, and co-workers.
  • keep a talented but frustrated team member planning to leave.

What’s one piece of candid feedback you can seek from someone you trust, to make you less ignorant and more self-aware?
