Ketan, what has been your experience?
Have you found fast trackers or high achievers to be flexible enough?
Are they open to feedback from team members and peers?
A question one of my coachees asked.
Having closely worked with the best of the best from the industry, directly and indirectly, the most inspiring personality attribute that I have observed, experienced and admired in them is the fact that each one of them has been Coachable.
Most of them came from ordinary backgrounds but got eXtraordinary results for themselves. Somewhere they have been the inspiration behind the Million Dollar Employee concept.
When I say they are coachable, they are incredibly high on learnability. They listen to every piece of knowledge, wisdom, experience and feedback which comes their way. Their hunger for self-improvement can't be explained in words.
"So do you mean they take every single piece of feedback and act?", the coachee asked.
"No; while they listen to each of them, they act on the ones that are relevant to them, the ones that help them become a better version of themselves", I said.
"But they do respect the feedback and the person giving the feedback, always", I added further.
The only person people change for is themselves.
