    Giving and receiving feedback, both positive and constructive, is an integral part of working with staff and customers. When feedback is skilled, timely, specific, and behaviorally focused, it can be a gift.  This training is appropriate for managers and staff, and will be of both professional and personal value.  This class is essential for those wishing to cultivate mentorship relationships and foster two-way communication for maximum effectiveness.  Topics will include giving feedback for sustained performance, feedback agreements, raising delicate issues, soliciting feedback and responding to unskilled feedback.

    Attendees will:

    • Identify different approaches to giving feedback and what approach is more effective to use and when
    • Distinguish between the challenges of giving and receiving feedback
    • Practice giving and receiving feedback
