510: How to Reduce Bias in Feedback, with Therese Huston
Therese Huston: Let’s Talk Therese Huston is a cognitive scientist and the founding director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Seattle University. She has written for The New York Times and the Harvard Business Review and has previously given talks at Microsoft, Amazon, TEDxStLouis, and Harvard Business School. Her prior books are titled Teaching What You Don't Know* and How Women Decide*. She's the author of the book Let's Talk: Make Effective Feedback Your Superpower*. In this conversation, Therese and I discuss how we can reduce bias that may unintentionally show up in our feedback. We examine several of the key feedback challenges for managers, including telling women they need to speak up, that they are too aggressive, or concerned they will “take it the wrong way.” We also highlight key language that can help leaders make these conversations more productive and transparent. Key Points Managers tend to sugarcoat feedback, but especially when feedback is being given to women. If someone is coming across aggressively, consider language like, “I’m not sure if that feedback is fair or unfair, but I wanted you to know it’s the impression some people have of you.” When giving feedback with the intention to help somebody improve, invoke high standards and assure the other person they can reach those standards. When feedback brings out strong emotion, help people restore their own control vs. trying to control. Research show that when giving feedback to someone whose face stands out, we spout vague pronouncements about how nice they are to be around.

How To Overcome Loneliness While Traveling
Loneliness is something I’m asked about frequently. It's intimidating to set off on an adventure without knowing how long you’re going to be traveling for or when you'll be "home." And, with the current pandemic conditions forcing many of us into a space of solitude, there’s never been a better time to speak on the topic of loneliness. In this episode, I talk about how we can cope with feeling alone and endure the absence of human connection and adventure, as well as how to cultivate peace of mind. Solo travel has helped me become comfortable with my own company and I would like to share a few lessons I’ve learned about loneliness with you, along with a few personal stories from my travels and tips for how to embrace loneliness rather than fear it. If we change our perspective and mindset around being alone, we can learn to turn it into a positive state of being, focusing on presence, gratitude, and fearlessness. Just as travelers are curious about the world and the unknown, we must stay curious about our feelings! Are you hesitant to become a digital nomad or travel by yourself for fear of feeling lonely? Trust me, you’re not the only one… Fortunately, those brief moments of loneliness that everyone encounters are always outweighed by long-lasting moments of immense joy, awe, and aliveness you feel while traveling the world. TOPICS DISCUSSED/WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: * The various definitions of loneliness (and if they're accurate) * The sense of self that is uncovered through travel * The difference between loneliness and being alone * Solitude and solitary confinement? (It's all in our heads) * Tips for shifting your mindset around loneliness and alone time * What happens when we resist loneliness and what happens if we embrace it * The connection that comes from moments of solitude * The possibility of feeling lonely while surrounded by other people * Stories from my travels about finding balance between feeling loneliness and contentment * How to cope with loneliness in healthy ways * How your connection to the world changes once you become a digital nomad * How full-time travelers feel about loneliness *Two things all digital nomads, remote workers, and world travelers need:* * * Travel Insurance with SafetyWing * A TransferWise Borderless Bank Account RESOURCES * Podcast: Sailing Ruby Rose Episode * Medium Blog: The Paradox of Loneliness in the Digital Nomad Lifestyle .......................................................................................................
