This episode will be of particular value to HR professionals who are looking for ideas on how to coach managers/leaders on giving effective feedback, especially around performance reviews. Sylvana Rochet discusses creative and impactful ways of approaching feedback, which she proposes should be a two-way conversation. Instead of viewing feedback as a one way flow of information (where one person provides feedback on what went well and what did not go well), she invites us to think of feedback as a two-way conversation where both people walk away with value
