‘Feedback’ is a word that gets thrown around a lot in professional spaces, but rarely does it come with a user manual on how the heck to do it right. Do you know how to give feedback in an actionable and thoughtful way? Have you learned how to receive feedback without taking it personally? Gillian and Jasmine talk through their strengths and weaknesses in the feedback arena and give helpful tips on how to take no shit and do no harm.
Friendships in the workplace sometimes feel like the Wild West. What happens when your friends become your coworkers? What if a coworker becomes a friend, but then you have to cut the friendship?! Jasmine and Gillian discuss the pros and cons of getting up close and personal with folks at work, and what the Summer Camp Effect tells us about how to proceed in these relationships.
If you are ambitious and care about your work, chances are you struggle with perfectionism. But do you ever get the feeling that the quest for 100% may actually be limiting your work? Gillian and Jasmine discuss the merits of incremental improvement and share their tips for overcoming perfectionism.
Today we talk about navigating the feeling of ‘unexpected overwhelm.’ What happens when you think you’ve done a great job, only to learn (sometimes not graciously!) that you completely flopped? Jasmine tells an embarrassing story of crying in front of an executive, and Gillian gives real advice on receiving feedback with humility.
Join us as we anxiously, but charmingly, release our ~*passion project*~ into the world. Gillian and Jasmine talk about their winding paths through the world of work, how they got to where they are today, and why they feel the need to talk about it on the internet.
