The Importance of Feedback
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.
- Understanding the importance of feedback to the improvement process
- How to ask for and receive feedback
- How to prepare and provide feedback
