Feedback is all around us at work and at home. Giving and receiving feedback is essential skill to build trust, effectively communicate, engage with colleagues and achieve results. When feedback can happen throughout each day, it's even more helpful than waiting for that annual performance review.

Using common and fun scenarios and in a light and fun environment, you'll have the chance to practice giving and receiving feedback by using a model to guide you through the experience. Special emphasis will be placed on creating a safe environment where participants can be open and learn from each other.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the benefits of appreciative and constructive feedback

  • Practice giving and receiving feedback
