Most of us fear the mere idea of feedback to some degree. Feedback can be difficult to deliver effectively, and it can be truly hard to hear. Yet, the fact is that without feedback, we have no idea how we are being received in the workplace. When it comes to being a great leader or a great teammate, we must know what impact we are having on others. And the only way to know that is to embrace feedback.

This course takes the learner through the foundations of why feedback is so vital, the role it plays in development, why it is so difficult, and best practices on how to both deliver and receive feedback productively. It explores the challenges – and potential – of using feedback to grow.

I am glad I stumbled upon this course. I've had plenty of courses on how to deliver feedback, but this took it further with how to receive feedback. I also enjoyed the underlying science behind why our brain shuts down when we feel threatened. This course was well thought out from start to finish and delivered effectively.

The course was very insightful, especially with providing feedback that focuses strictly on behavior and not judgment (opinions, feelings etc.). Overall, great course!!!
