Every team that has ever existed has been presented with some sort of challenge. In fact, some people might argue that the sole purpose of a team is to tackle problems and overcome challenges.

In this episode, we discuss how to embrace compassion, courage, and connection to build successful teams. We also share a few tips for implementing these essential things on your team.

Giving and receiving feedback can often be the catalyst to create long-lasting, sustainable change in attitude and disposition within an organization or culture. In this episode, we discuss how leaders can prepare to give and receive feedback, as well as the five norms of giving and receiving feedback to others. Enjoy!

In this episode, we discuss tips for setting up a structure and environment that is conducive to giving and receiving feedback. We also share a few tips to help you build structural supports on your team to make feedback more effective. Enjoy!
