Anna Carroll, MSSW, firmly believes in the power of feedback within teams and organizations. As an executive coach and organizational consultant, Carroll specializes in workplace feedback, leadership development and facilitation of groups, and is well known for her ability to make connections between people and business results in a concise and compelling way.

Her newest book, The Feedback Imperative: How to Give Everyday Feedback to Speed Up Your Team’s Success (River Grove Books, July 2014), explains how to do just that. Carroll emphasizes the value of workplace feedback and explains how to equip leaders to be great feedback-givers.

In The Feedback Imperative, Carroll applies her extensive research and expertise in business consulting and psychology to illustrate how brain science, generational trends, our information economy, limiting beliefs and organizational culture collide in the new workplace, therefore, creating a huge gap between the supply and demand of professional feedback. Ultimately, Carroll aims to give readers the proper tools to execute a feedback turnaround that will give employees information they need to build a culture in which employee-to-leader and peer-to-peer feedback are welcome and encouraged.

As a veteran in the business consulting landscape, Carroll’s experience working with global corporations like eBay, GE, Singapore Airlines, Applied Materials, University of Texas, Zimmer and many more allows her to easily identify future trends in the workplace.

Carroll completed her undergraduate work at Sarah Lawrence College and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and later received a master of science degree in social work form the University of Texas at Austin. She completed her professional coach training form the Coaches Training Institute and is certified as a CTI Certified Professional Co-Active Coach.

While not working with organizations to be better at giving feedback, Carroll enjoys cooking and listening to world music. She and her husband live in Austin, Texas. www.everydayfeedback.com
