Data Crush: How the Information Tidal Wave is Driving New Business Opportunities

The Internet used to be a tool for telling your customers about your business. Now its real value lies in what it tells you about them.

Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well By Doug Stone and Sheila Heen

We swim in an ocean of feedback. Bosses, colleagues, customers—but also family, friends, and in-laws—they all have “suggestions” for our performance, parenting, or appearance. We know that feedback is essential for healthy relationships and professional development—but we dread it and often dismiss it.

That’s because receiving feedback sits at the junction of two conflicting human desires. We do want to learn and grow. And we also want to be accepted just as we are right now. Thanks for the Feedback is the first book to address this tension head on. It explains why getting feedback is so crucial yet so challenging, and offers a powerful framework to help us take on life’s blizzard of off-hand comments, annual evaluations, and unsolicited advice with curiosity and grace.
