Everything we know about running a business tells us that things are better when they've been shaped by a diverse range of people.

That means that, when we've been working on something, it's really valuable to seek input from others to help improve it. And it's also important for us to spend time helping our colleagues refine what they are working on. This makes our company better for all of us.

Giving feedback well is a vital part of any leadership role. But it's also really important that you're able to share your plans and ideas and consult on them — soliciting feedback from key people or the entire organisation.
