‘Receiving Feedback – A Forever Skill’


I love the new book by Kieran Flanagan and Dan Gregory, ‘Forever Skills – The 12 skills to future proof yourself, your team and your kids’. 

Check out their book here:



They list essential 12 forever skills:

  • Insight
  • Conversion
  • Problem-solving
  • Agility
  • Influence
  • Team building
  • Trust
  • Translation
  • Self-control
  • Resource management
  • Order
  • Implementation

The 13th Skill:

When you begin to master these 12 skills, I believe you can add one more, the skill of asking for, and being open to receiving feedback.

The individuals I coach who are inspired, courageous and open to receiving feedback for growth, have the ability to ask for it, rather than avoid it.

Typically, they:

  • They have the insight to consider the feedback from the other person’s perspective.
  • They have the agility to imagine an alternative universe and allow others to challenge their own assumptions.
  • They have the courage to fail well.
  • They hold themselves accountable.

How well developed is your 13th Forever Skill of asking for and receiving feedback?
