Shifting away from peer criticism and lack of individual commitment, this approach teaches leaders and team members alike to hone their personal awareness, participate in the development of others, and collectively drive success as a team. I've seen nothing like it, and it is effective."

"I had the pleasure of experiencing the Shift Positive Method while leading People, Talent and Culture at Wieden+Kennedy. The mindset shift is built upon principles I believe in, arranged in a manageable framework. As an HR executive, there are so many models to consider; this is one of the few that leads to culture adoption and change. I couldn't recommend it more to other CHROs or CPOs."

"Once I was trained in the Shift Positive Method and learned the science and research behind what makes it so powerful, I made it the chosen method our coaches use with clients. I am thrilled that Pete and Jen have made Shift Positive even more accessible by writing Feedback Reimagined. Shift Positive is our go-to feedback tool for leaders wanting greater psychological safety, more engagement, enhanced collaboration, better performance, and stronger teams. I will be sharing this book with all of our HR partners!"

"When offering career advice over the years, I have often said, 'Know what you are good at, but more importantly, know what you are passionate about.' It was difficult for me to explain 'why' to people until I experienced the formal coaching around strengths-based feedback and took my team through the Shift Positive process. It's a breakthrough in getting alignment, positive energy, and motivation for yourself and your teams!"

"My leadership strengths were crystalized and deepened with the Shift Positive Method. The process was a two-way mirror; it at once affirmed my self-awareness and offered insight into how others experience me. Armed with this profound knowledge, I see the possibility for my personal growth with greater clarity, optimism, and conviction to grow into my next leadership frontier."
