    • Not All Feedback is Created Equal!

    Not All Feedback is Created Equal!

    Giving and receiving feedback is not as easy as it sounds. Research has shown many managers find giving feedback stressful to the point of avoiding it all together. What’s more concerning is almost half of managers surveyed state they do not give positive reinforcements either! The lack of open and effective feedback does not only cause anxiety in an organization but can diminish performance, morale and innovation. 

    This workshop addresses fears preventing feedback conversations, and teaches a framework for giving effective feedback. Furthermore, the workshop covers techniques to be more receptive to feedback, both positive and constructive, and how to navigate response from feedback to channel your personal development.
    The workshop comes with interactive and fun exercises to drive the message home.
