You don’t take compliments well and you need to learn how to say “Thank you.

68% of us are embarrassed by positive recognition, yet feedback (both providing and receiving), is critically important to your growth as a leader. But what to do?

First, begin accepting feedback with a simple “Thank you.” Second, learn how “Thank you” is only the first step in the “Accept-Amplify-Advance” process for accepting compliments that Suzann and James Pawelski outline in their new book. Finally, learn about the most common reasons people struggle with compliments, figure out which of this negative programming has impacted you and correct your course.

Then, the next time you receive a compliment, remember to simply say “Thank you.
