You know your life will be easier if you can train the people you supervise to do a better job, whether it's your assistant processing your reimbursements, the junior staff completing a project, or your kids to just clean their rooms already. And being able to give helpful feedback when your supervisor or peer asks can help your relationship and help you be seen as a leader. But giving feedback seems fraught with peril. You don't want to be seen as difficult or unpleasant to work for, but just saying "looks fine" and secretly redoing work yourself isn't helping you or anyone else. In this webinar, you will learn how to give feedback in a way that actually gets the results you want, and that helps the recipient learn and grow.
