I was told by a very experienced construction leader that one way to get feedback from the team is to read what is written on the walls of the port-o-potties on the job site. He felt it is a valuable (if graphic) way to know what people think of your leadership. I admire his fortitude.

There are lots of ways to get feedback and that is an interesting one. We should always be on the lookout for feedback and we should not wait for a formal 360 or an annual review. Ask people and keep your eyes open. There may be signs if you get attentive—wherever you find yourself.
