Giving/Receiving Feedback


 Tuesday, September 19
10:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST

Steve Reiner
Vice President, Sales
Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits


Join Steve Reiner, Vice President, Sales, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, and author of Leaders Created, for a three-part Leadership Series. Giving feedback can be just as hard as receiving it. To be an effective leader, our ability to provide feedback in a manner that is warm, and caring is just as important as the way we react to receiving feedback from others. A high level of Emotional Intelligence along with a dash of trust can build employee engagement and a higher chance for success. The time we spend sitting, talking, caring, and communicating directly with people will create the motivation needed for high performance and growth.


Key takeaways:

  • Let’s dive into a few tips and tricks to giving feedback. Let’s be honest, this is uncomfortable for many
  • Let’s also talk about how to receive feedback. This can be hard — we work so hard every day and when someone tells us we can be doing something differently, it stings
  • We will dive into the importance of Emotional Intelligence and how providing and receiving feedback can help foster greater leadership

Steve Reiner has been with Southern Glazers for almost 20 years. Much of his career was spent in Miami, before relocating to Chicago and Dallas. Steve has held a variety of roles starting in sales, management, and executive positions. Steve started entry level as he was graduating college; Spent two years in a sales role learning how to talk with customers.

Next, he moved into his first management position which gave him his first dose of managing people. During this time is when he went back to school and received an MBA from Nova Southeastern University in Ft Lauderdale. As he was graduating, Steve earned a promotion as the State Manager. In this role is where he learned how important stellar communication skills will become in his career.

 Steve was successful in sales up to this point and was about to embark on hard core lessons in management and leadership. From here is where Steve‚Äôs story gets interesting, and he begins some of the toughest roles he has held in business. Not tough because of the tactical work. Tough because of the interpersonal work that was going to transpire in the coming years. The next two roles are where he learned a lot about people, himself, and leadership. Much of the stories Steve loves to share come from these two positions because of the impact they had on the growth he has enjoyed since. During these two positions, he created the leader he is known for today through awareness, experience, and practice.

In 2021, Steve wrote a book called Leaders Created that captures the mistakes he made and lessons he learned during the first 20 years of his career. The book is available on Amazon. 

 Steve is married to his wife Blaise, and they have two sons, Grandon and Grant.
