In this way a leader can elevate a speech into a more powerful and ultimately productive experience--for the speaker as well as for the listener.

Strober and Jackman provide a four-step process for actively pursuing the feedback you need, and methods for giving feedback that allow you to feel comfortable and in control, whether the message is negative or positive.
