Making feedback productive

Feedback is not an assessment

  • Feedback is a necessary skill that we use all the time
  • There is often confusion between feedback and assessment or evaluation
  • We have a hard time accepting feedback in difficult situations
  • We need to grow our empathy, our ability to listen, observe and share with respect

Using the Savoir-Relier methodology and L’ATELIER as a reservoir of knowledge and practice, in this workshop, you will improve your ability to give and receive feedback with sincerity and respect.

When signing up for this workshop, you know you are joining a group of people who, like you, are in need to improve their use of feedback to enrich their interpersonal relationships and grow their empathy.

Duration: 3 hours

Format: Full on-line

Asking the right questions and engaging in self-reflection you will understand better what feedback entails.

  1. What is your definition of feedback?
  2. When do you experience feedback (describe situations, people …)?
  3. What qualities do you need to give effective feedback?
  4. What qualities do you need to receive feedback and learn from it?
  5. How do you react when you receive negative feedback?
  6. How do you proceed and behave to give difficult feedback?

Learning what feedback is about requires to adopt the right posture. During this short course, we will set the basis for constructive interaction with better speaking, listening and observing skills to engage in group sharing where you will address real-life feedback challenges.
