Giving employees or team members feedback is an essential skill for every manager or team leader. If you do this well, your team members will perform well. Their success is your success. That is the purpose of this course.
Feedback should be a primary learning activity, welcomed as an opportunity for growth by the recipient. Unfortunately, very often feedback is viewed as punishment, a source of anxiety that inhibits one's ability to learn. The purpose of this course is to help you develop the skill of giving feedback in a way that reduces anxiety and maximizes the opportunity for learning and continuous improvement on the part of the individual.
This course is intended to be very concise and direct, focused solely on this important skill of both giving and receiving feedback.

- "Miller's course provides positive perspectives and strategy on what many managers view as a difficult and sometimes unpleasant part of their job.
