Today I Succeeded by Failing

It's a strange feeling I have.

As a manager, I, sometimes, feel like a mother.

Today, a team member gave me feedback on how she wants me to provide more direct support and help when she asks for it. She says if she will ask for direct help and if she did, she wants me to provide exactly what she needs.

I have pleasant strange mixed feelings.

On one hand, I feel like I'm have not been a good manager and didn't provide what exactly she needed.

On the other hand, I'm proud that there is physiological safety for my team member to trust me that I won't take the feedback personally and wants me to improve on how I can help her in the future.

I guess I succeeded by failing. :)
