Leadership Development Half-Day Course with Sara Jeckovich - Giving Feedback

Tuesday, November 12, 8:00 - 11:45 AM
**Preregistration required with $124 additional fee** Have you ever received feedback that felt more like a personal attack than helpful guidance? Or maybe you struggled with giving feedback because you feared hurting someone’s feelings? Let’s be honest: both giving and receiving feedback can be awkward. Effective feedback is a superpower for any leader. Done well, it can inspire growth and improvement and create stronger working relationships. Sadly, many managers struggle with this. Roughly 4 out of 10 employees are actively disengaged because they feel they don’t receive enough meaningful feedback. In fact, one survey found that 64 percent of employees wanted their supervisor to check in with them at least every two weeks. Giving and receiving feedback skillfully is a core leadership competency. It builds trust, improves performance, and promotes a more peaceful and productive workplace. Filled with real-life examples, discussion and roleplay practice, “Giving Feedback” will transform the way you offer feedback to your team.
