We're popping-up at The Hoxton Portland, Oregon, for our latest Open Day on July 11th, connecting with our local partners and saying hello to new ones too. We'd love to have you along.

Led by YCN coach-facilitator Katy Kent, we're hosting two 60-minute Owning Feedback workshops at 9.30am and 12pm. Our tools and techniques for more effectively giving and receiving feedback have been road tested by managers and teams at leading organisations around the world. We'd love to know what you think of them. Drop us a line to save spaces.

Owning Feedback

— Workshop Outline —

In the modern world of work, feedback is a must-have for managers and teams — the ultimate learning tool. It's something we must continually improve our ability to share clearly, and at the moments that matter most. As well as giving feedback effectively with those around us, we've got to regularly pull it in, rather than wait for it to be pushed our way.

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

This pacy, positive and 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 sharpened with teams of all shapes and sizes. Not only that, but it's hyper-practical in its focus, and will transform the quality of the conversations you have in and outside of work.

What we'll cover:

• What gets in the way of giving and receiving feedback?
• Strengths-based approaches
• The brilliant BID model (Behaviour > Impact > Dialogue)
• Ways to pull in the specific feedback you need
• Managing emotional triggers

How the sessions will be structured

We'll mix visually-driven activities, reflection exercises and small group conversations, pulling in the perspectives of those along and practicing proven approaches in a safe and supportive space. All attendees will receive post-workshop physical and digital tools to refresh and replay your learning, and to share onwards in your teams too.

This 15-minute eCourse covers much of the core content we'll be collaboratively exploring on the day. From frameworks for landing feedback clearly, to techniques for tempering the triggers within us — it's yours to explore and share with anyone you feel would find it helpful.
