CSN Bite-Size Book Club — Brag, Worry, Wonder, Bet: A Manager's Guide to Giving Feedback  (back)
Giving someone feedback can be a daunting task for a manager-especially when an employee is underperforming. To soften the blow, we sometimes refer to difficult feedback as "developmental" or "constructive" but these phrases rarely prompt the type of productive conversations managers need to have with team members. Steve King, a longtime executive who has held leadership roles with a variety of organizations including UW-Madison, cuts to the chase with a simple and tested framework on providing feedback.

Think of how great it would be to break through the typical awkwardness of giving feedback and start having serious conversations about performance, development, and careers. Regardless of your role, if you want to give feedback to others on a regular basis, you need a proven approach to improve the quality of your conversations. It starts with four simple words-Brag, Worry, Wonder, Bet.

Join Shelly Vils Havel and Rich Gassen of CSN to read this short book, and then have a one-session discussion around the topics covered within. We’ll send the book and other materials to participants two weeks before we meet. Then, on August 24 at 12:15, we’ll get together on Zoom to have a conversation about delivering feedback effectively.
