How to Offer Feedback Without Criticism

Season #3

Criticism never feels good to be received and if we're honest, it doesn't feel good to deliver, when one wants to be a supportive, compassionate person. So how do we have conversations where we share what we really think and feel without criticizing others? This podcast discusses ways to address this topic in relationship with others, beginning with the relationship with yourself. In order to have the healthy and positive relationships that most of us want, taking time to build our communication skills can be a worthwhile endeavor. Some examples of how to handle specific situations are shared.

Journaling prompts are suggested to further your exploration.
