Overview

Unlock the creative and innovative potential of your team members with a new approach to feedback and review

In Kindly Review: The Secret to Giving and Receiving Feedback to Make Your Ideas Great is a transformative new approach to taking the sting out of the review process and unlocking the innovative and creative power of your teams. You’ll learn to regain control over your work processes, from project start to completion, and get products to the finish line quickly and efficiently.

The author identifies eight “classic” styles of giving feedback and contrasts them with the effective Kind Review process, a system for creating respectful, collaborative, and innovative working environments. You’ll find:

  • Strategies for gathering, receiving, and giving feedback respectfully, productively, and kindly
  • The reasons why receiving feedback can be so painful in the first place, and ways to reduce the emotional impact of critical and negative responses
  • A comprehensive model for respectful workplace collaboration with team review and feedback at its foundation

A can’t-miss roadmap to unlocking freedom, creativity, and innovation amongst your team members, Kindly Review belongs on the bookshelves of leader at for-profit firms, nonprofit agencies, and government departments looking for new ways to approach team leadership.
