The Importance of Feedback

Tuesday, February 5, 2019 -
17:30 to 20:00
 Add to Calendar

Welcome to 2019.  If you are like most people, you made a couple of resolutions.  Did they include making changes to improve your professional life and/or career?

Making changes can be easy, making improvements is more difficult.  It requires help – feedback from someone else’s perspective.  Asking for feedback is one of the most important and difficult things to do.

And providing feedback isn’t easy either.  Sure, sharing positive comments can be easy: great attitude, dependable…, but the negative?  How can you help someone improve if you’re reluctant to tell them what needs to be improved?

Frank Palmeri and Cleo Rodgers will present on the importance of feedback to the improvement process, and how to successfully navigate your way through it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the importance of feedback to the improvement process
  • How to ask for and receive feedback
  • How to prepare and provide feedback

Presenters: Cleo Rodgers and Frank Palmeri
Frank Palmeri works for the New York State Office of Information Technology Services in data processing for over 30 years.  He is the current president of the NYS Forum's Toastmaster club.
