Accepting Feedback Gracefully
Receiving constructive criticism can be easy in theory, but tough in practice. For some tips on how to take advantage of feedback, Liz and Rico speak to Wisconsin-based freelance writer Kat Boogaard, whose preferred topics include career and self-development. Kat will reveal ways to get through those tough conversations and thrive, instead of just gritting your teeth and bearing it.
Then, we’ll hear from listener Emilie, who’s having some trouble figuring out how to give feedback to her indecisive manager. And Liz and Rico will debate whether it’s acceptable to cry at work in this week’s Bad Advice segment.
Finally, in our latest segment of You Get Paid To Do What? Liz and Rico will hear from Alexis Fraser, A.K.A. Lipstick Lex. Lex is a Florida-based artist who uses “kiss prints” to create her colorful paintings. In other words, she applies lipstick in tons of different colors, then kisses a canvas to create portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Steven Tyler and other works of art. Check out Lex’s Instagram for some stunning visuals of her unusual technique.
