008 Receiving Feedback

Air Date:  April 16, 2021

The common perception is that coxswains give feedback, but the other side of that coin is just as important. Coxswains aren’t only sources of output. To excel, we have to be receptive to input.

We walk through a practice from start to finish, discussing how even a simple act like “get to the dock” is more nuanced and complex than people appreciate.

007 Giving Feedback

How can we wield our words most effectively? Like James Bond (the original 007), a laconic man known for pithy phrases, a great coxswain can learn to use words like Q’s sophisticated gadgets.
