When you think of feedback, do you compare it to the terrible sound coming out of a speaker that we hope to avoid and want to make stop as soon as possible? What if the feedback we receive is more like a story or a song that we want to hear and turns into one of the best things we get to listen to? During this session, we will explore our mindset about feedback and practices that can enable feedback to flow throughout the organization.
