Let’s be honest: Some of us love getting feedback. While others hear this phrase and have nightmares. The same goes for the giver.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Chris Bi ...…

Truth You Can Act On: We're all human. We have to model the behaviors we want to see, but we also have to realize that we aren't going to be perfect models.

Truth You Can Act On: Take a 360 degree approach. Cross departmental integration and collaboration from every angle of employee and customer experience. Take time to think about this.

Truth You Can Act On: Understand what makes a good mentor. Think back to a mentor who has truly impacted your career and life journey.

Connecting with people and being available to you ...…

Truth You Can Act On: Hire for attitude and beliefs. Don’t hire based on competency. Skills can be trained. Beliefs—not so much.

There are satisfi ...…

Truth You Can Act On: Eliminate silos. Shift from working in silos, or individual parts, to working as a whole organization. Silos create competition, egos, and bureaucracy.

Truth You Can Act On: Healthy Accountability. Too often we think of accountability as a negative term. Holding your team accountable doesn’t mean they’re in ‘trouble’. Instead, it should be viewed as an opportunity to achieve goals together. So when you think of accountability, first think of buy-in. What are the things that need to happen in o ...…
 
Truth You Can Act On: Focus on humanizing your communication. Don't forget it's not what you say, it's how you say it.

Really focusing on how big commun ...…
