Helping you develop healthy feedback skills to have difficult conversations
Our peers are often the source of our most valuable feedback, but we rarely get candid, critical feedback from peers. It’s difficult to tell peers “hard truths” as it requires an investment of social capital to do so. In addition, we each have behaviors that shut down peers from telling us the truth.
The desired outcome of Pre-Resiliency Training is to develop an awareness of our behavior that prevents others from giving us the TRUTH, followed by practice on DIALING DOWN this behavior.
Counterintuitively, the best way to increase the amount of truthful communication between peers is NOT to focus on feedback-giving skills, but instead to train people to DIAL-DOWN behaviors that stop others from giving truthful feedback. Simply stated, PRT upgrades team decision-making by dial-downing behaviors that create silence.

The first part of leadership is being super self-aware. If you are not aware of your own blind spots and biases, you cannot impact, influence, or do any work with other people.
The human brain is wired to grow. If it doesn’t grow, it feels burnout. The human brain is also wired to protect us so when we feel ashamed and insecure when things aren’t going well, our ego takes over and contradicts the desire to grow.
We have become so good at looking around corners of any criticism that we all have built-in protective mechanisms – behaviors that say “I’m going to make it very painful and very difficult for you to tell me the truth”.
