Brené Brown
“I only accept and pay attention to feedback from people who are also in the arena. If you're occasionally getting your butt kicked as you respond, and if you're also figuring out how to stay open to feedback without getting pummeled by insults, I'm more likely to pay attention to your thought about my work. If, on the other hand, you're not helping, contributing, or wrestling with your own gremlins, I'm not at all interested in your commentary.”
Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

Jarod Kintz
“People hear the word “sales” and it scares them. But sales is nothing more than developing a relationship. A good salesman knows the relationship must be balanced and symbiotic—both parties must feel that what they received is equal to what they gave. But a great salesman knows he has to give more than he gets, and in doing so he ends up getting more clients and sales and positive feedback.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

Tim Gunn
“When I took over as chair of the fashion program, I was horrified that only the faculty member was allowed to speak in a critique. I'm talking about perfectly nurturing teachers. But the rule was there would be no call of hands for students to contribute their feedback. It was embedded in the department's culture. That was alarming to me. When I was teaching, I was the least important person in the room as far as I was concerned--my students' points of view mattered most. I wanted to learn who they were and teach them to respect one another's perspectives.

I would start off by saying something like, "I am having trouble understanding how this work solves the problem at hand. Here are some things about the work that I appreciate: X, Y, Z. But I see these virtues independent of the problem we're solving.”
Tim Gunn

Oliver Markus
“I purposely used a pretty cocky, abrasive writing style in Sex and Crime, to stir up some drama. My confrontational style quickly became the talk of the scene. Some of the things I wrote were so inflammatory, people had to vent about it on online forums. So suddenly everyone in the scene was talking about Sex and Crime, just as I had hoped. I enjoyed playing the role of agitator, and people from competing hacking crews didn't even realize that the more they bitched about the things I wrote, the more credibility and notoriety they were adding to my scene mag. Thanks to all the positive as well as negative feedback I was getting, the things I wrote actually mattered. Suddenly I was the most important opinion maker in the scene.”
Oliver Markus, Sex and Crime: Oliver's Strange Journey

Victor Hugo
“Amis, un dernier mot! - et je ferme à jamais
Ce livre à ma pensée étranger désormais,
Je n'écouterai pas ce qu'en dira la foule,
Car qu'importe à la source où son onde s'écoule?”
Victor Hugo, Les Feuilles D'Automne: Les Chants Du Crepuscule; Les Voix Interieures

Sara Sheridan
“Having instant feedback on twitter to research material I'm considering is an enormous help.”
Sara Sheridan

Assegid Habtewold
“You don't need to be Blind Loyal. Having the best interest of that person in your heart shouldn't stop you from constantly giving feedback.”
Assegid Habtewold, The 9 Cardinal Building Blocks: For Continued Success in Leadership
