    2. When I’m given feedback/ criticism, I usually think about it before responding, waiting
    just a bit.


    3. When I’m given feedback/ criticism, I rarely find myself defending a position or action immediately.


    4. When I’m given feedback/ criticism, I ask questions about it in order to try to better
    understand it. (A good sign.)


    5. I feel my work’s purpose is to serve my external customers.


    6. I feel my work’s purpose is to serve my internal customers (managers, colleagues, other
    departments).


    7. I’ve changed/ revised my position/ approach because of the advice of another individual.

    8. My manager invests time in my professional development (If s/he doesn’t, it might be
    because of a perception that you’re uncoachable).
