Today’s episode is my favorite.
My podcast guest is a cognitive scientist who literally wrote the book on how to give feedback.
Therese Huston is the author of three books. Her last book, How Women Decide, was named a summer reading title by Oprah.com and called “required reading on Wall Street” by the New York Times. In 2004, Therese founded the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Seattle University. She has also written for the Guardian, the New York Times, and Harvard Business Review
