Learn how to give feedback to enable and empower:

Both giving and receiving feedback are crucial for personal development, motivation and job satisfaction yet the act of giving feedback is one that many people avoid, for fear of conflict arising. It can be tough being on the receiving end too – if it’s positive we tend to dismiss it and if it’s constructive it can be hard to hear.

This Feedback Skills workshop starts by dipping into the psychology of feedback to help us understand why we feel and react the way we do. It teaches delegates how to give feedback in such a way that enables and empowers the recipient, without causing undue worry in advance. And it gives tips on how to invite, receive and act on feedback graciously.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop you will be able to:

  • Understand the impact of feedback on self and self-development.
  • Understand some psychology of feedback and how to use this to overcome obstacles when delivering and receiving feedback.
  • Know how to use a range of models when giving feedback – and how to adapt your approach when feeding back remotely.
  • Learn how to invite, receive and process feedback.
