In this episode, Patty and Brandi discuss the challenges to both giving and receiving feedback, whether you're a supervisor, a colleague, or just a friend. It's important that both positive and constructive feedback be given promptly, specifically, and kindly. In this session, we cover tips for overcoming the barriers that keep us from giving the most helpful feedback and from receiving feedback in a constructive way.

Our guest for this two-part episode of Finance Matters is Valencia Harvey, Assistant Director of the Virginia College Advising Corps and member of the HoosBrave team. You may have gotten to know Valencia as a UVAForward presenter; in this pod, she talks with Patty and Brandi about the concept of Brave Space: a framework that allows us to have the courage to be challenged, to explore the uncomfortable, and to stretch, make mistakes, and learn from one another's differences.
About Hoos Brave:
Hoos Brave? is designed to help all participants think more deeply with more courage about our individual role in the current state of discourse about race and difference. “HoosBrave,” a crew of volunteers at UVA, has been developing and conducting interactive workshops at UVA for faculty, staff and students. The free workshops have been offered since 2012 through the Center for Leadership Excellence. HoosBrave is both an intentionally diverse team and a philosophy that has adopted “brave space” rather than “safe space” as our working approach.

In part three of our three-part series with experts from FEAP, Mary Sherman talks us through how to achieve better work/life integration, and thus have a more harmonious, purposeful life.
