The Art of Giving and Receiving Impactful Feedback

Feedback is one of the most avoided conversations for many leaders, but it is one of the most effective tools for employees to understand what they need to continue doing to be successful.  You need feedback to get better at what you do, but giving and receiving feedback are skills that need to be learned and practiced to make them effective.  Our experts, Julie Spence, Assoc CIPD, Head of Talent & Development at GIG Gulf and Ana Caragea, Leadership Advisor & Coach, GC Index® Partner, Founder at Strategic Discovery, will guide you through the theory and practice of effective feedback.

This is for you if:

  • You want to build a better way to communicate feedback.
  • You want to improve the way you receive, process and act on feedback to get better at what you do.
  • You want to be able to confidently communicate feedback to other members of your team.
  • You feel uncomfortable accepting praise and/or criticism.
  • You want to strengthen your communication skills

You'll learn:

  • How to give and receive impactful feedback.
  • Tactical methods for communicating well and encouraging feedback.
  • How to act when receiving or giving feedback.
  • How to use feedback to advance your career, promote a healthier workplace culture and build trust.
