What people are saying

        Yesterday, I had to deliver feedback. It was going to be difficult, or so I thought. Thanks to Chelsea Seid and her company’s resources, it was a little easier.

Business Operations Leader
        I would strongly recommend Chelsea's firm for Executive Coaching services. Chelsea's methodology was thoughtful, intentional, and impactful. She was always laser-focused on outcomes and mindfully efficient in how we achieved those outcomes. Her feedback was insighful and guidance on target.

        Chelsea is an expert in the professional coaching space. Working with Chelsea has been a huge benefit to me personally and the organization I serve.

Tami Brown 

Director Of Corporate And Foundation Relations
        I legitimately can't recommend Chelsea enough. She helped me navigate a very difficult personnel situation I inherited as a brand new manager when we didn't have HR. We'd just started working together and she was humane, thoughtful and made me feel confident going into some difficult conversations. That alone was worth the price for her services.

Course Syllabus


Session 1: The Formula

An easy formula to give tough feedback! When you need to deliver constructive feedback do you find yourself lost for words or fearful you will leave your audience upset or disinterested? Unspoken or poorly prepared feedback is the least effective. Discover the tools and confidence to deliver the feedback your team members need to be successful.


Session 2: Defining the Objective Behavior

Effective feedback includes an objective behavior, not a subjective evaluation. This “you are not asking for others’ ideas” not “you do not work collaboratively.” In this session, we will take feedback and dissect the objective behaviors to ensure your team members know exactly what you are asking them to do differently


Session 3: Aligning Impact and Motivation

Feedback needs a why- “why is this important?” Your why, or impact, needs to be motivating enough to evoke change without breaking trust and disengaging your audience. We will craft your why so it aligns with the motivators of your audience, gives them the inspiration to do things differently, and maintains excitement in their work.


Session 4: Your Ask and Your Approach

So what’s next? Now that you have the wording for your tough feedback you need to consider how you will approach the conversation. In this session, we will discover how to apply situational leadership to adjust your approach to the needs of your team member and the situation at hand.
