4. Ask for Feedback
  • Ask questions like 'What am I doing well?'

  • 'What are you unhappy with?'
  • People who actively seek feedback are perceived in the organisation to have a much higher potential for advancement
5. Make Suggestions for Improvement
  • Feedback doesn't only happen downwards, it can happen upwards as well
  • Talk to your manager about your problem
  • Do so in a productive, constructive way, your manager will be more open
