Background on Giving and Receiving Feedback
Feedback is essential for growth as a person, a team, a product or an organization. However, it's not always comfortable to accept the feedback that we receive, as well as it is far from being easy to offer meaningful feedback.
By completing this course, you will get introduced to the power of feedback and how you can use that power appropriately in service of the people you interact with. You will learn a model which describes what it is like to receive feedback and get a few suggestions to become better at giving useful feedback.
The course is composed of a mix of instructional reading texts, resources, practice recommendations and interactive quizzes, which aim at stimulating different parts of our brain and thus help learn more and retain the learning longer.
