Most leaders appreciate feedback so they can continue to learn and grow — to serve their team, their stakeholders, and their organization. They want to know what they’re doing well and what their opportunities are; yet, too often, they receive feedback that is vague and nonspecific.

In this episode, Leadership Coach Deb Elbaum shares a question strategy aimed at making it easy to get balanced, relevant, and actionable feedback, so that people can know what behaviors to continue and change. If you’re ready for an easy strategy for getting better feedback, press the play button now.
