Delivering (and requesting) feedback workshop

Delivering (and requesting) feedback workshop

There will absolutely be times when you need to give actionable, specific feedback to your teammates. And there will definitely be times that you need to hear some feedback, too. But humans are mostly bad at giving feedback, and we’re also really bad at preparing ourselves to receive it. This is true no matter the situation - hearing that we do something at home that drives our partner crazy, or our coworker, or our boss.

In this workshop, we’ll practice turning real-world stuff into specific, actionable feedback that has a good chance of landing. Attendees will even get to practice delivering it, to see how it feels and how to prepare for saying those words - they’ll leave this workshop ready to deliver specific, actionable, and easy-to-digest feedback.
