How to Give and How to Ask for Effective Feedback

January 10, 2017

Many people are uncomfortable giving or asking for feedback and most individuals assume that it is quite time-consuming to undertake this. This presentation will focus on a method for providing succinct, focused, timely and effective feedback to others, whether one is in a supervisory role, the role of an educator or the role of a colleague. The presentation includes an overview of the method followed by role-playing of several scenarios. After participating in the workshop, the audience members will have a structured approach that will allow them to feel more effective in giving or asking for feedback.
