Giving and Receiving Feedback – Working with Others Positively for Impact

October 22, 2020 @ 13:00 - 14:00 CDT

Join this webinar to learn about the four key practices for giving and receiving feedback that will help you and your team excel.

How good do you feel about giving and receiving feedback? If you feel nervous or stressed whenever feedback conversations arise, you are not alone.

In a Harvard survey, 100% of respondents reported that feedback conversations were among their most difficult. Yet – feedback is also crucial to growing skills and better systems to create impact.

At worst, feedback creates hostile, terrible work environments. At best, it can accelerate impact, improve team collaborations, and create better health for all.

Join this live webinar to learn about four key practices for giving and receiving feedback and how to overcome the pitfalls.

This webinar is for anyone who:

  • Has had negative feedback experiences with their supervisees or managers
  • Managers who want to increase their team’s impact and performance
  • People who are nervous about upcoming reviews
  • Teams who seek to establish positive norms around giving and receiving feedback
