How do you influence those in positions above yours to make the changes that make sense for your company? How can you give feedback to those in a position of authority and expect it to be accepted appropriately? Do you have the drive you need to continue to succeed or are you comfortable where you are? You don’t have to be in a position of leadership in order to show leadership characteristics on a daily basis. You can influence the decisions in your company, but you might have to take a different path to the conversation that needs to take place. You can give feedback, just be ready to accept some feedback yourself. You do need to maintain your motivation and drive to succeed to reach the pinnacle of your career goals.

Let’s Grow Leaders Article:
You don’t have to be in a leadership role to have an influence on the leaders in your company. When you see the bigger picture and know your company is about to make a change that will negatively affect the bottom line, you need to speak up. The trouble is, you might be looked at as complaining or as someone that’s only trying to cover their own interests without presenting a true solution to the challenge. This can be frustrating, but if you truly care about your company and what they plan to do, you’ve got to find a way to show that the planned change just might cause more problems than it will solve. This means you may have to change the way you think and adjust the way you plan to present solid information that supports your claim.
Top Ten Reasons Leaders Ignore Feedback
Leadership Freak Article:
There are times when you’re going to receive feedback and you don’t want to hear what others have to say. How could someone else have an opinion about what you’re doing other than a positive one? The fact is, other people, give you feedback for the same reasons you give feedback to them. They genuinely care about you and want to see you perform at your best. Instead of dismissing feedback as coming from a place of negativity and from someone who doesn’t know what you go through or how you feel, accept it and learn how to make the feedback work for you. This means learning how to thank the person giving you the feedback for what they’ve had to say and find a way to process it and make it work to your advantage.
This is the Secret to Getting What You Want (Most People Do the Opposite)
Are you comfortable with where you are in life? If you’ve reached the level of success that you’re looking for, and you’re comfortable, that’s fantastic, you can sit back and relax. For most of us, we haven’t reached the level of success we want to achieve and need to keep working to move forward. Unfortunately, too many of us will rely on others to tell us what to do to become successful without carving out our own path. Your success needs to be individual and match your drive and goals and not fit what someone else thinks you should do. By that same token, you need to make sure you’re not relaxed and comfortable in the position you’re in. Make sure you constantly want to achieve more and are finding ways to work toward that goal.
