Tough Conversations: GIVING AND RECEIVING FEEDBACK: The Underpinnings of Good Coaching
Roy will provide the group with practical and no-nonsense tips on how to give constructive feedback and how to receive it, as well. His counsel will enable you to improve key areas of performance or behaviors and provide input that will help you in the role you might assume as coach.
