As with so many aspects of communication, it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.

Some excellent advice on the best way to get input from others in this short HBR article that summarizes research supporting “Why Asking for Advice Is More Effective Than Asking for Feedback.”

If you follow Marshall Goldsmith, Feedforward: Coaching For Behavioral Change, is another alternative for gowing your leadership team.
