From Weekly I/O#18

When looking for honest feedback, ask for a 0-10 score and then ask how to get closer to a 10.


This tweet is from Adam Grant, an organizational psychologist and the youngest tenured professor at the Wharton School.

The original tweet is "When people hesitate to give honest feedback on an idea, draft, or performance, I ask for a 0-10 score. No one ever says 10. Then I ask how I can get closer to a 10. It motivates them to start coaching me – and motivates me to be coachable. I want to learn how to close the gap."

I should definitely use this technique to get more honest feedback on my writing and perhaps learning. Please don't be surprised if I start to ask for a 0-10 score on the newsletter for the following weeks 😆
