Giving feedback

Providing feedback to team members is one of the most important parts of management communication. As well as promoting professional growth and skill mastery, feedback can also instil confidence and increase job satisfaction. This workshop supports managers to give feedback in a meaningful way that the receiver can unpack and use with purpose.

Impact

On your business

  • Greater workplace relations – managers recognise the impact of giving feedback on themselves and their team members and can take practical steps to turn conversations around it into a dialogue that reinforces positive relationships.  
  • Improved employee satisfaction – managers understand why feedback conversations can feel threatening, and can take action to mitigate this so that feedback lands in a more positive way. 
  • Overall growth throughout the organisation – managers know how to give feedback that the team member will find useful, therefore team members are more able to build the advice into their personal development and work towards growth. 

As a result of this workshop participants will

  • Feel confident that their team members deserve and need to hear useful feedback to be able to improve and develop. 
  • Use best practice for giving feedback to deliver meaningful praise and supportive improvement. 
  • Be able to overcome barriers to starting feedback conversations by using a model-based approach. 
  • Make giving feedback a useful and positive dialogue, exchanging ideas and solutions. 
  • Be able to manage any challenging reactions to the feedback they deliver.

The research is clear: most managers feel uncomfortable giving feedback to their colleagues– who actually want to hear it! Yet it is a requirement for all managers and a right to receive for all employees. Organisations with a culture of sharing helpful feedback are more likely to be thriving – it’s as simple as that. 
 
This workshop helps participants build techniques for preparing and giving feedback, making is easy to deliver and useful to receive. We explore how to make feedback a conversation where recipients can leave feeling empowered and prepared to act upon the feedback.  This in turn builds an environment where feedback is shared readily and regularly from a place of positive intent. 

Participants will explore the impact of feedback on mindset whilst creating balance between formal and informal praise and improvement feedback. They will consider how to begin and structure their conversations when giving feedback along with dealing with less cooperative responses. They will leave feeling more determined and equipped to instigate more feedback conversations to improve performance and the wellbeing of their colleagues.
