Apply Self-Regulation and Accept Feedback

May 5, 2021 | Blog | 0 comments

We need to discourage inappropriate activity to ensure that systems can continue to function well.

Self-regulation, or self-control, empowers us to be more accountable and effective human beings.

It can also lead to greater efficiency in business. Feedback is essential for personal and professional growth.

By understanding the effects of our actions, we can make better decisions.

This Principle encourages systems to be self-regulating and continually accept feedback so the system can be maximized for efficiency and abundance.

The Benefits of Self-Regulation and Feedback Acceptance

Individuals or businesses that cannot take feedback and self-regulate leave themselves open to struggle and stagnation.

In contrast, promoting these elements can reduce stress, increase efficiency, create healthier home/work conditions, and improve relationships.

Tips for Implementing Self-Regulation & Encouraging Feedback

Ways in which we might encourage feedback and apply  self-regulation include: 

  • Be honest with yourself about your personal health and wellness goals.   What is your body telling you?   What do you know to be true about your habits and their resulting effects? If you don’t know,  seek a professional. Either way, cultivate the courage to make the needed changes. If you lack the strength to make those changes, consider hiring a coach.
  • Identify distractions that consume your time. Decide who and what is allowed to get your attention. Some of the biggest universal distractions are  Social  Media, cellphones, and email.  Learn to be proactive with these things rather than reactive.
  • Open conversations with our spouses, partners, children, and family members about home life, interpersonal struggles, unmet needs, outdated agreements, shifting preferences, shared spaces and responsibilities, etc.  The harder the topic is to talk about, often indicates the increased need to bring it up.  Practicing active, non-reactionary, non-defensive listening is crucial for success here.
  • Leave room in conversations for devil’s advocates, for black sheep, and to hear the voices of those outside of the organization’s dominant culture.
  • Lastly,  I’ll mention the importance of getting good at offering feedback to others. Studying and practicing methods of providing constructive feedback in an objective, non-threatening, and compassionate manner is one of the best things that any of us can do for building healthy relationships and helping those around us realize their highest potential.
