Critical Art of Feedback


Giving and receiving feedback in the workplace can be hard to do; interacting with a colleague, supervisor, or employee, can quickly and inadvertently result in negative feelings or behaviors if feedback is provided without appropriate context or relevant examples. However, feedback can be empowering and supportive when done constructively and thoughtfully. In this session, the presenters will interactively engage the participants in how to develop a workplace environment that encourages the use of constructive feedback and provide participants with specific ways to engage in constructive feedback with their colleagues, supervisors, and employees.
