All too often we find ourselves feeling tension at work. When things start feeling “off,” we need to get clear information. Analyzing problems down to their core can help teams avoid these problems. But you have to learn how to get honest with each other. This might even be my number one role as a coach!

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to coach a variety of different leaders in the workplace. Whether you’re a manager, VP, or a partner, I tend to start our sessions in the same way. This one simple step really sets the tone for how we move forward — and often earns me instant trust.

If you’re ready to get serious about honest feedback, go ahead and press that play button. Then after you check out this video, please head to the comments section. I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you handle constructive feedback from your team.
