Workplace Application:
Feedback doesn’t have to be painful – simple models for constructively giving and receiving feedback show how to build trust and maximize impact. 

"Can I give you some feedback?" Why does this question always seem to make our blood pressure rise and defenses go up at the mere mention of the word? Join PeopleFirm in exploring the science behind feedback to gain an understanding of why we fear it and how to fix it. Practice some mind and body hacks and adopt a simple conversational model that you can apply immediately to help build a positive culture of feedback organizationwide.
