Oh S*%t It's Feedback NEW


Nothing knots our stomachs quicker than the thought of giving tough feedback. We delay and worry about it for far too long. But feedback, done well, is very powerful. It’s an art that can be learned and which improves with practice. In this session, we take you through the practical steps (literally) on how to have that conversation you are dreading…And make it a powerful intervention.

Beyond the difficult conversations, positive feedback is often missing in our busy world today, too. The power of appreciation and a regular, well timed ‘keep going’ is critical for sustainable high performance. Two people will guide you through the journey – Jane Sparrow, who is a regular speaker at The Henley Partnership and, this time, a little blue man will also support her! Together they will walk you through the process of giving effective feedback, helping you to duck or diffuse the ‘grenades’ that fly into feedback sessions and cause so much of the angst that stops us doing it well.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone that needs to motivate and get the best of people. Particularly suit for those leading people at a mid-senior level.
