How would you like to find time to do the things that you want to do with more energy?
I teach people to have TOUGH conversations so they get a better night’s sleep.
Many of my clients tell me that they wake up in the middle of the night trying to figure out what to say to a boss, co-worker, or a negative person in their personal or professional life.
This blog post will give you a few tips so you can be direct, gain control and stop wasting time trying to figure out what to say to that person!
Joyce is interviewed for The Leading Edge radio show by Debra Levantrosser
Listen to this 7 minute radio show (The Leaning Edge) where Debra Levantrosser interviewed me on this very subject.
Debra is the Founder of The MI Lean Consortium (MLC).
MLC was founded in 2008 by a group of forward-thinking individuals who firmly believed that if every MI organization
used lean principles, the state’s economy would rebound.
Debra Levantrosser is a leading international professional in the areas of productivity improvement, alignment and change, and facilitation and planning.
She is also the founder of Arbed Solutions which helps business grow and develop the next generation of leaders.
She interviews key players who use the LEAN concepts to reduce waste at their work.
4 DON’TS in Using Constructive Feedback
Okay, you’ve worked on staying calm when others give you constructive feedback.
When people give constructive feedback, they do it to influence future behavior – not to change the past.
Though it may be difficult to hear, try to listen … and:
1. Don’t defend yourself.
2. Don’t deny responsibility.
3. Don’t counter attack.
4. Don’t withdraw.
