It's not easy to have "the talk" with someone.  In this week's episode, we break down our tips for giving feedback that is productive... meaning the person you're giving feedback to will be more likely to CHANGE!
 
Here are a few of our tips:

3. Incorporate both positive and negative in your feedback. 
4. Prioritize and specify the action steps that person can take to improve.
