Hi. I'm Aimee Bateman, careers coach, founder and CEO of Careercake.

In this video, I am going to talk to you about how you best give negative feedback up the chain. This could be to your boss it might be to somebody or anybody, really, in the organisation who has more of a senior position to you.

So, this is something that you might be struggling with. Most people do. Most of us don’t want to tell someone something we think they don’t want to hear, especially if that someone has more of a senior title - so they are Manager or Team Leader.

You could be new to the company and don’t want to ‘rock the boat’ or it could be that you have actually been there ages, you’ve been in your role for quite some time.

In this course, I am going to talk you through some tips and tools that you can use to make yourself more comfortable giving that feedback up the chain.
