Check out my book Calling Up at!

But no one just happens to have the character. It’s built into us by a long process. My parents gradually increased my freedom as I demonstrated responsibility because they understood that my character begins with the little things in life."  -Tony Dungy

I know I am ready to give feedback when: 1. I’m ready to sit next to you rather than across from you. 2.

I want to acknowlege what you do well instead of picking apart your mistakes 5. I recognize your strengths and how you can use them to address your challenges 6. I can hold you accountable without shaming or blaming you. 7. I’m willing to own my part. 8. I can genuinely thank you for your efforts rather than criticize you for your failings 9. I can talk about how resolving thsese challenges will lead to your growth and opportunity 10. I can model the vulenrability and openness that I expect to see from you.
