Discover How to Make these Conversations Easier—for Both of You!

Almost everyone struggles with giving and receiving feedback. Yet everyone struggles for different reasons. This means that learning how to give meaningful feedback, is not one-size-fits-all.

  • For some people, resistance to receiving feedback is tied to a fear of being judged, making mistakes, or failing.
  • For others, offering feedback is associated with criticism.
