Letting someone know about a mistake

Its easy to let someone know that they did something wrong. Its harder how to do it properly and not burn bridges. This training was helpful in telling people how to manage issues properly. A concern was brought up, a conversation happened, both parties are better afterwards.


Remember when someone is giving you feedback the intent is to help you be better and give you new tools to improve.

sharing is caring

the best practices are to get everyone involved and students participating with their learning experience. I do utilize action plans to assist students in achieving his or her goals. I feel that my major successes are when students are striving with their grades and their learning experience. My major challenges are when students are failing.   


Will encourage my peers and student to encourage  feed back in a timely manner and let it be a learning experience.

Be Kind

It is important to come from a place of kindness and have a relationship when offering constructive criticism so that it’s easier to receive 

Feedback Rule of Thumb

Start with a positive attribute and end on a positive note. 


It is the key to everything. Without good communication you will most likely fail in anything you try to do.


I leaned that engaging the audience with humor, eye contact and well prepared presentation will have a better effect than a poorly executed presentation.

Communication without stress
