What is this workshop about?

Giving feedback effectively is an important skill for leaders and teams. Leaders who learn to give feedback effectively are better placed to solve problems, improve team productivity and create a happier workplace. When teams don't know how to give feedback, this can lead to resentment, misunderstandings and inefficient work processes. Giving direct and effective feedback doesn't come naturally to everyone, so this workshop is designed to help teams see the value of feedback and understand how to give feedback more effectively.

Throughout the workshop, we'll talk about the importance of creating an environment conducive to constructive feedback and reflect on our attitude when receiving feedback: are we a sponge, open to growth and learning, or a rock, resistant to change and development?
