Feedback is the breakfast of champions. So why would most of us rather go hungry?
Leadership egos can be fragile. Asking for honest feedback feels difficult, because we are fearful of what we might hear. Giving honest feedback is equally hard: many of us have been socialized to avoid conflict, and that impulse hampers our ability to offer direct feedback. Yet without that honest feedback, how can we know how to grow as individuals? How can we help others – our direct reports and employees - grow?
Learn to defeat defensiveness and inspire a better future through Appreciative Feedback.
Built on the Appreciative Inquiry methodology, Appreciative Feedback gives leaders and managers a strengths-based, positive approach to addressing real challenges with the performance of team members.
- Explore positive and effective alternatives to problem-based approaches to leadership development.
- Learn the Appreciative Feedback process of Find It, Flip It, Elevate It – to defeat defensiveness and inspire action.
- Rethink your weekly check-in with direct reports or teams, to create a more engaging and energizing process.
- Develop a bank of questions that provide direction while motivating and empowering your team to get the results you need.
Do you ever wonder why your feedback isn’t heard? This workshop is designed for executives and professionals who want effective, energized individuals and teams; consultants and developing leaders will also find the methodology useful, as they expand their leadership capacity and toolkit. Activities:
- Develop a bank of questions for use in sharing Appreciative Feedback.
- Create a new feedback strategy for meeting 1:1 with your team members.
Be Ready: Come prepared to ask questions and engage with the speakers.
