Book: "Thanks for the Feedback: The Science of receiving feedback well" by Douglas Stone & Sheila Heen

Check it out here: http://stoneandheen.com


Receive. Don't retaliate.
Respond. Don't react.

This is what Stone & Heen help us to do in Thanks for the Feedback. Instead of learning how to be a better GIVER (how well is that working for you?), they show us how to seek, receive & accept feedback gracefully "even when it is off base, unfair, poorly delivered, and frankly, you're not in the mood." Like feedback itself, this book will likely make you uncomfortable and that is exactly where the potential and magic lie. If you are a CEO, leading a learning organization, part of a team, a parent, brother / sister, friend, the insight and practices in this book could lead to much deeper, stronger relationships. It will give you the means and strength to cope, handle and grow with feedback.

The facilitators will also share how to incorporate these and other practices into your organizations, professional or personal lives that will inspire creativity, encourage commitment and energize you / others to reach your growth potential.

The authors' previous book, "Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most", was a very engaging book discussion led by Joe McDonough in May 2009. I would anticipate the same for this discussion.

This engaging discussion will be facilitated by Kim Richards and Theo Bowling.

As a reminder, you don't have to read the book to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!

During this roundtable we'll:

· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions in 2016, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
