In this episode, we’re going to delve deep into the world of feedback and explore why it can often be seen as a dirty word. For many people, the mere mention of feedback can bring up feelings of anxiety, dread, and even anger. But why is that? Why is it that something that is supposed to help us grow and improve can be so difficult to hear and give?
To shed some light on this topic, we’re going to chat about the book “Feedback and Other Dirty Words: Why We Fear It and How to Fix It” by M. Tamara Chandler and Laura Downing Grealish. We’ll discuss the challenges that organizations face when it comes to giving feedback and why the traditional approach to feedback often falls short.
But don’t worry, we’re not just going to talk about the problems. We’ve got some great strategies to share with you that will help improve the feedback process and make it a positive and constructive experience for everyone involved. We’ll explore how to create a culture of trust that promotes personal and organizational growth, and how to leave those negative feedback experiences behind.
So, if you’re ready to embrace feedback and take your personal and professional development to the next level, then tune in and join us on this journey.
