If you’re serious about staying ahead of the curve, a regular assessment of your strengths and weaknesses is valuable. But don’t trust your own judgment—seek advice from colleagues familiar with your work who will give you a candid review.

Jon Luther, CEO of Dunkin’ Brands, knows how important it is to ask: “Seeking advice is a signal of strength, not a sign of weakness. If they’re honest with you, other people help give you more self-awareness.”

Employees appreciate modesty, and admitting you don’t know it all will help you figure out how to fill gaps in your performance. Just remember to seek a well-rounded review. Include people with stakes in your success, as well as those with no skin in the game.
