Description: This session considers feedback and the sense of apprehension and tension that surrounds the conversation from all sides. We’ll talk about types of feedback, including those beyond evaluation, the importance of balancing styles, and understanding the powerful influence of feedback. We’ll spend time understanding what happens when we receive feedback, and what interferes with feedback becoming actionable. The ability to move through conflict, including competitive listening and de-escalating situations to move forward into environments that are innovative and creative. Participants will gain self-awareness about their own relationship with feedback, and how to support others for success with feedback. Emphasis on interpretation of the message and the decision structure for action.


  •  Create a practical, personal plan for feedback shifting from tension to open reception
  •  Discuss navigation of feedback conversations including setting boundaries, gaining clarity and creative problem solving
  •  Articulate an understanding of relationship and identity triggers that create feedback tension
  • Critically assess feedback intentions and messages, making an informed decision to accept or reject feedback, and creating an action plan if needed
  • Demonstrate the ability to participate in feedback conversations in all directions
