"Feedback is one of your best tools to meet your goals. Whether in business, leadership, or your personal life. Skillfully used, feedback becomes as an inexpensive and highly effective way to invest in your people. It drives engagement, strong team retention, and constant growth.When it’s handled poorly, feedback becomes your biggest danger. Emotions run high. People take everything personally. Nothing gets done. What was meant to be a source of improvement and engagement is now is a source of tension, frustration and often anxiety. The future belongs to coach-like managers, who focus on people development."These are the words of today's guest, Raf Baron "The F-word Coach". In our conversation, we covered topics like Servant leadership, Self-awareness (also in relationship with children), how to catch yourself and control yourself from exploding (by observing the patterns your body sends before it happens), lack of sleep and its effects, patience, the importance of explaining vs “do it because I said so” – from childhood to management.

Throughout my adventure on LinkedIn, I've been blessed to meet tons of amazing people. And one of them is the lovely and extremely #beautifulwoman Jacqueline Way. After watching her TedX talk ("How to create happiness in your life every day" - and seeing a video on the aforementioned platform, I told myself I can't let such opportunity slip through my fingers. So I invited Jacqueline in the show. My guest has dedicated herself to social good projects, both personally and professionally, for over two decades. In 2010 she started a parenting project (called #365give) with her oldest son (3 years old by then). The concept was to give back to the world every day, for one year. But this adventure amplified in such a manner that today it's implemented in education institutions, with the support of educators. The program is an educational tool for teachers, powered by students, from kindergarten stage to 12th grade. The program assists in achieving Curriculum, Core Competency and Social Emotional Learning goals set out by the BC Ministry of Education through daily giving activities. It allows students to develop the necessary intellectual, personal, social, and emotional proficiencies, in order to engage in deep and life-long learning. I am happy to say that this year I decided to get involved with the #365give challenge, on 17th of May, by teaching my own children what giving looks like.
