How do you know if you're doing a good job?
You need feedback to learn and grow, but how do you get the focused input you need? And if your boss is stingy with pointers and advice, how do you encourage them to give you more? Who else should you be asking to help you improve? And do you know how to receive feedback? Can you "work" with feedback without compulsively accepting everything as true or discarding it as false because it's emotionally too overwhelming? If you haven't fully mastered this skill yet, you are missing out on many growth opportunities and a better life. Research shows that feedback-seeking behavior is one of the best predictors of better performance and job satisfaction.

Each program follows a simple and effective evidence-based approach to skills mastery:

Assess yourself

Reflect on where you currently stand and discover the practical components necessary for mastery of this skill. 

Learn sub-skills

The skill is broken down into 3 essential sub-skills, each of which is the focus of one learning workout. You'll do 1 workout every 2 weeks over the next 6 weeks. 

Talk about it

Have an insightful conversation with your colleagues about how to implement each sub-skill in your day-to-day.

Build micro-habits

Along with each workout, design your own micro-habit to start putting your learning into practice on a daily basis.
