You may have heard the saying “feedback is a gift”. In this episode, we dive deep into what feedback is (and isn’t), how to ask for it if you’re not getting any, and some of our tips and tricks about how to send, receive, and ultimately grow from feedback. Seeking feedback and seeking validation are not the same thing. If you build the relationship, feedback will come. Feedback is ultimately about listening. View the full show notes and extras on our website: www.morethanayoungprofessional.com/Resources & LinksIf you’re trying to figure out how to find a mentor, try this book: Find an Old Gorilla by Bert Thornton, former President & COO of Waffle House, Inc.How to run effective daily scrum meetings guide The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It by Michael Gerber“Leaders who don’t listen to others will eventually be surrounded by people who have nothing to say.” - Andy StanleyKeep this conversation going with us @morethanayp on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.You can find your hosts:Justin Oswald: @JustinOswald_ (twitter & instagram)Ruthie Christie: @RuthieChristie (twitter)Meg Rich: @MeganinFL (instagram)
As a Pensacola-based podcast team, Hurricane Sally took precedence over our time for a while, but we are excited to be back and continue the conversation with Changing Careers Part 2.

For others - like Justin - it’s a calling you can’t ignore.What was that song they talked about?  In the show opener, Justin mentioned a song “Sally (That Girl)” by Gucci Crew II  Later in the show, Ruthie mentioned the song “Hold on Loosely” by 38 Special (Props to Justin for singing a line!) Resources: Still not sure HOW to initiate a career change?

We had so much to stay about changing careers that we couldn't fit it all into one hour, so we broke it into two!In today's working world, it's more likely that employees will change careers a few times over the course of their professional lives. Now, we aren't talking about changing jobs, or finding new opportunities in the same industry, we get down to the heart of when it's time to completely change course and head in a new direction. What makes us qualified to talk about this? All three of your hosts have changed careers in their working life!

What makes you a leader? (Hint... it's not your title.) This episode we'll talk through why makes someone a leader, and how to you can show your leadership even when your title doesn't reflect it. What's the difference between a "leader" and a "manager?"We talk everything from forming relationships based on trust, transparency, and authenticity, to allowing others the space to fail forward.We also ask the hard questions: What is your motivation? If it's just for the title... it's probably not a good start.Resources from this episode:What is the DISC?
