Feedback For Employees

"In my early thirties, I heard someone ask the question, 'If there were no praise or criticism in the world, then who would you be?'" – Howard Behar. It's Not About The Coffee.

Great teams don't happen overnight, great careers are not built overnight, they are built one situation at a time when leaders know how to provide high quality feedback and employees know how to receive it. Yet when you ask most employees about receiving feedback, most reply that they would like more feedback and that they are a little nervous about receiving it. This workshop has been designed to focus on the employee side of the feedback relationship, by helping employees see the value of feedback, know what to expect, and get into the right frame of mind to receive it well and grow with it. This workshop woks very well when combined with the leadership version, to prepare and motivate the entire organization to build a culture in which frequently high quality feedback becomes commonplace.

Workshop Overview:

  • The employee perspective
  • The seven roles feedback plays.
  • Frequency and duration of a typical feedback instalment.
  • Encouragement and correction – the two variations of feedback.
  • A specific three step pattern for delivering high quality feedback.
  • The seven characteristics of quality feedback
  • Receving feedback well

Don't miss this opportunity to equip your leaders with this essential skill.
