Praise for “Setting the Stage”

I dropped the name of your book in a meeting with a few managers at my company last week and walking around the floor today, everyone one of them had a copy on their desk. I told them that some of the best management feedback and advice I have ever received came from the person who wrote this book. Thank you for putting something like this together.

The exercises and focus on self-reflection to enable readers to uncover assumptions and develop managerial skills. The content is presented in a straightforward manner, conducive to learning. Highly recommend!

I loved this guide by Karen Weeks on preparing for feedback conversations. I read Difficult Conversations and enjoyed it, but it was long and there wasn’t room to practice. This workbook, however, is the perfect length and structure. It’s a perfect plug and play for teams, workshops and individuals looking to improve feedback delivery. It’s well-researched, approachable, digestible and introspective. I had a lot of “aha” moments as I went through it. Highly recommend!!!

This workbook helps ensure you’ve asked yourself the right questions, are in the right headspace, and are properly prepared to deliver high impact feedback. It’s clear her years of experience have guided her to develop a tool that every leader, new or seasoned, should have on their bookshelf.
