That’s not good enough

Really appreciating Patrick Lencioni’s At The Table podcast.

Episode 24 touched on an important phrase that very few people share: “That’s not good enough.”

Why is it so hard to share this crucial bit of feedback? Does it make us a jerk to tell a colleague (or even a loved one) that they can and should do more, or better?

If we say it to promote progress and continuous improvement, it comes from a place of kindness. A rising tide lifts all boats.
