At the soul of The Me-Suite is the conviction that we should lead our own lives with the same discipline that C-Suites lead the companies we most admire. Just like a C-Suite leader, we each need a Me-Suite mindset to stay true to our core values, to keep the day-to-day humming smoothly, and to stay fresh and relevant for the future we desire to have. Each Me-Suite episode will interview a guest (a suitener, as I like to call them). Each guest will share morsels from their experiences that are helpful in running their own lives with more purpose, planning and power, like a C-Suite. We find the amazing in everyone, balancing the aspirational with the practical and sharing tips that you can start applying on Monday. The Me-Suite is a source of Power for the life-minded. Let's get in there.

    Don't Settle For This Feedback

    Don't Settle For This Feedback

    This episode is a Me-Suite "suitener."  Your host, Donna Peters, takes a  question from a listener.

    The question is, "I haven't got the promotion I thought I'd have by now, and my performance feedback is 'keep doing what you're doing.'  What should I do with that feedback?"

    Well, it's my favorite question. It's also the most painful because the honest answer is that feedback is lazy, and it's extremely unhelpful. So I want to break this down for a moment for the listener who submitted it and anybody else who might be facing this situation.

    No one cares about your career more than you do, and so when you get feedback that is as vague, aka lazy, as keep doing what you're doing, it's going to require you to do a little bit of extra work, obviously, do it respectfully assume positive intention, these were not evil people. But you do need to do some extra work to get specificity around. What do you need to be doing in this next year? And how will you know what is the evidence that you have that you are progressing to the promotion in the next cycle. So this may require a follow up conversation asking for specificity. It may require that you get some tough feedback that you weren't expecting to hear. It may be that you were getting signals that you might have plateaued. And so therefore, you're getting wonderful information that you might want to be seeking work in another organization. Again, this is all information and you need it. And then the most positive thing that can happen is that you do get more specificity around that feedback. And you're very energized to be continuing to grow your skills and demonstrate that you are progressing to secure that next promotion doing everything in your power in your control to do so.  The next time you hear feedback, keep doing what you're doing, do not accept that as an answer, and get more clarity.

Game changer for me

This podcast has made a lasting impact on my personal and professional life. It taps into incredible wisdom from very successful and genuine people. Highly recommend!

Every second of this podcast has powerful and pragmatic content. Donna is a masterful interviewer and gets to the stuff that really matters without wasting time. I replay episodes sometimes because there is so much valuable content I can’t get it all in one go.
