Have you ever been part of a feedback conversation that didn’t go very well? One that didn’t seem to have a purpose or plan? One that seemed grounded in critique instead of growth?

Yeah? Me too. The ability to give and receive feedback in an impactful, respectful, and truly helpful way is so important to being successful in our jobs, yet many people struggle with this fundamental skill.  Many people find it so difficult to give feedback that they avoid it entirely, and they are terrified of receiving feedback.  When feedback is avoided, however, bad behaviors are never corrected, workplace resentments grow, and people are left to wonder whether they’re doing a great job or a terrible job.

In this course, the Udemy L&D team shares some top tips on how to improve your experience with feedback, both giving it and receiving it!
