While being a supermodel is hands-down out of the question for most of us, Heidi Klum's business sense is something that can inspire and motivate any working girl. She's smiling on the cover of InStyle's December issue and inside the magazine she spells out her five rules for success. The rule below is my favorite.
- Be open to learning new things: "It's not good to think you know it all—I don't think that's cool or smart. I think there's always more things that people teach you. Be confident and open to incorporating certain suggestions!"
Her rule applies all year-round, but it's especially important advice given many companies are now in performance review mode. Notice valuable feedback when it's given to you, and you'll improve overall.
