PSA: this is a public apology to my exes and old friends.
I used to be SO BAD at giving and receiving feedback. I was emotional and reactive because I didn’t have the right skills, tools, and scripts to allow me to give and receive feedback in a healthy and productive way. The only good thing to come out of that? I learned from my mistakes, so now I do have those skills, tools, and scripts, and I can share them with you.
When you have the right communication tools, skills, and scripts, your relationships will deepen, you will move up faster in your job or business, and you will learn how to advocate for yourself.
Communication is a skill. It’s time to unlearn the bad habits and learn some new ones because it turns out, it’s not about who’s right or wrong. If you want to know what it is about, grab your coffee, tea, or boba and tune in.
What We Cover in This Episode:
- Relearning how to communicate after growing up in a reactive and emotional household
- How to advocate for yourself without creating conflict
- Why giving feedback is an important skill to develop
- Improving your work relationships and culture
- How to deepen your relationships
- Four tools and corresponding scripts you can use to give feedback
- Taking time to reflect on conversations that did and didn’t go well
- The importance of calm and conscious communication
Let’s be real, THANK YOU THERAPY, thank you to all the therapists I have worked with (that’s right, it’s “therapists” with an “s” because your girl needed a lot of work), and thank you to my other mentors and coaches.
To you reading this, congrats on showing up for yourself to learn the tools to communicate, give feedback, and deepen your personal and professional relationships. Thank you for trusting me to help you.
