Giving Feedback Well - Creating Safe Dialogue

Are you frustrated with, or challenged by, giving feedback in the workplace?
Do you wish for more engagement in workplace feedback conversations?
Looking for strategies you can use to support others' growth and career success?

We can help!

In this 90-minute virtual session, you will examine the complexity and risks - to all parties- in giving workplace feedback. Framing feedback discussions as a dialogue with both parties giving and receiving, we will discuss your role in building trust and a sense of safety for receivers. We will examine effective communication strategies within these dialogues, such as: clarifying purpose, focusing on facts vs stories, seeking first to understand, communicating intent, and common pitfalls in communication. Participants will practice strategies for starting a safe and constructive feedback conversation and create a plan for improving their workplace feedback experiences. This interactive workshop includes self-reflection, breakout discussion, and action planning activities.

During this virtual session, we will use breakout rooms for discussion and practice; access to microphone and camera recommended. Attendance via phone not recommended for virtual sessions.
