Ask for feedback

As an agency, we’re always seeking ways to improve relationships and deliver bigger results for our clients. As citizens of the world, we’re always looking for ways to be the even better versions of ourselves. Isn’t that why we’re doing this in the first place?
What’s the best way for us to know where to start improving? Ask. Seeking feedback can lead to more satisfaction, show commitment and lead to better performance reviews.
Not sure the right way to ask for feedback? Here are some helpful do’s and don’ts from the Harvard Business Review. Check out the full article for additional tips and case studies.


  • Understand the kind of feedback you want, whether it’s coaching, praise, or an evaluation of recent work.
  • Ask in real time. This will create a more organic feedback loop going forward.
  • Pose specific questions designed to elicit helpful information and examples.


  • Just ask your boss for feedback. Ask colleagues, junior staff, and clients as well.
  • Think you have to schedule a formal meeting. You can have brief, informal coaching moments after meetings, in the elevator, and over coffee.
  • Rely on email when you are on a virtual team. Pick up the phone.

What’s been the best piece of feedback you’ve received? Tweet us at @closerlookinc with #evenbetter2018.
