Owning feedback

Owning feedback

"We each have two human needs: To learn and grow and to be respected, accepted and loved the way you are. Even though feedback facilitates learning and growth, it conflicts with our need to feel respected. This is a key reason we resist feedback." — Sheila Heen, Thanks for the Feedback

By the end of this session you'll feel more confident and capable to effectively give and receive performance enhancing feedback, positively impacting your most important relationships.

Always be learning

In modern working cultures, feedback is a must-have — the ultimate learning tool. It's something we must continually improve our ability to share and to absorb at all times. As well as landing it clearly with those around us; we've got to regularly pull it in, rather than waiting for it to be pushed our way.

But often feedback is handled badly — infrequently, too formally, framed in the wrong way, not rooted in real observation and impossible to 'isolate' and act on. And so it's no surprise that this can have negative consequences; points of view get muddled, identities challenged, emotions triggered and relationships rocked.

This pacy, social session is all about getting into the habit of giving and getting purposeful and performance enhancing feedback in the right way and at the right times.

The content we'll collaboratively cover has been road-tested and sharpened with lots of teams of all shapes and sizes, is hyper-practical in its focus and will transform the quality of the conversations you have at work and home.

The facilitator was very attentive and inclusive. I really liked the breakout exercises, will definitely be using the BID model and making sure to be continually noticing more!
