Effective Feedback Principles

Wednesday May 2, 2018 (9:00 am – 12:00 pm)

With many organizations, the use of effective feedback and recognition are communication tools that many leaders do not take advantage of to increase performance, build productive relationships, and maximize retention. Often feedback is given only if a problem exists and unknowingly the techniques used for this corrective feedback actually have the opposite effect intended. As human beings, we often hunger for feedback. However, many people will tell you that when they do get feedback, it’s often because of something they have done wrong. This course is designed to help workplace leaders learn how to provide feedback any time that the message is due. Whether feedback is formal or informal, and whether it is provided to employees, peers, or someone else, there are ways that it can be structured to be effective and lasting. This course will help participants learn why the way we deliver is feedback is important, how to deliver a message so that people accept it and make changes that may be needed, and how to accept feedback that we are offered.
