Welcome to What to Read Wednesday, a series where we suggest different reading material about mental health and wellness. Stay tuned every Wednesday for new recommendations!
This week, we’re looking at “Thanks for the Feedback,” by Douglas Stone and Shelia Heen. According to their website, “We know that feedback is essential for professional development and healthy relationships—but we dread it and often dismiss it. That’s because receiving feedback sits at the junction of two conflicting human desires. We want to learn and grow, but we also want to be accepted and respected just as we are now. ‘Thanks for the Feedback’ is the first book to address this tension head on. It explains why getting feedback is so crucial yet so challenging and offers a simple framework and powerful tools to help us take on life’s blizzard of offhand comments, annual evaluations, and unsolicited advice with curiosity and grace.
Coauthors of the international bestseller ‘Difficult Conversations,’ Stone and Heen, have discovered that while receiving feedback can be fraught, doing it well can be taught. With humor and clarity, the book blends the latest insights from neuroscience and psychology with practical, hard-headed advice. It is destined to become a classic in the world of leadership, organizational behavior, and education.”
