Here’s what I’ve been learning recently about growth and work.

How to Give and Receive Feedback

Giving and Receiving Feedback
Craig Groeschel | 25 min podcast

We receive feedback every day. All our lives, we’ve been graded, ranked, rated, scored, chosen, accepted, rejected, invited, and left out.

Love your work and the people you work with.

Here’s how to get started.
