I got some feedback this week.
The individual that gave the feedback was hesitant about providing it but it was needed. It was even welcomed, even though I had not made it known.
I respect this individuals perspective, knowledge and expertise and by them providing feedback it allows me to get better at what I do.
I probably should have made it known to him sooner that he could approach me at anytime to provide feedback.
Feedback is everywhere
Feedback is all around us, we just have to pay attention and be aware.
If you slice your golf shot into the woods, you are doing something wrong with your swing. If you smell something burning in the oven, you left the dinner in to long. If you wake up with sore muscles, you worked your body to hard the day before.
Feedback is all around us, all the time.
Some things are just more obvious and transparent
and some times it helps with a third party, outside perspective to help us see, realize, correct and refocus. Your business could be giving you feedback but you may not know what it is or how to interpret it.
This feedback could come from such forms as;
- No closings for a month, two months, or three months.
- Not having any current listings.
- Going on a listing appointment but not getting the listing.
- Not getting a referral from past clients or sphere of influence.
- Website not converting traffic into leads
What do these things mean, but more importantly what can you do to correct it?
