After multiple references in various podcasts I’m starting to read and digest “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There”. I’ve got a lot to learn and found habit #3 (Passing Judgement) to be particularly challenging. The book suggests that we as leaders should withhold our opinion because others don’t like to be critiqued.
How do we differentiate feedback from passing judgement? When I offer negative feedback I’m clearly communicating the impact of an undesired behavior.
Is “Passing Judgement” more about the ideas and opinions others share prior to the making of a decision?
I find it hard to believe that I’m better off allowing a direct to proceed with a bad idea when my input could help make the idea better.
“Passing Judgement” seems to be closely linked to “Adding Too Much Value”
When is it ok for me to actually share my insights and opinions on the members of my team?
