"I think the trick to giving difficult feedback to a senior person or anybody who is in a leadership position is to first tell them how they are valued and how they are actually contributing really well to the organization. And then very quickly move into more coaching mode and explain with great specificity and examples, how they can be better, both for themselves and the organization as a whole." -- Aaron Kwittken
"I think the best way to renew your spirit is to focus on what you have, not what you lost or don't have. Then very quickly move towards plan-building mode to determine in a very linear way, but also with as much creativity as possible, how you'll be able to get to that place where you were beforehand. And that place can be different things for different people; it might be a profit target, it might be a revenue target, it might be a success metric on behalf of a client.
