Study after study shows that employees crave direct feedback from their managers.
When done well, feedback helps to communicate common purpose, establish clear expectations, maintain alignment, and engage employees. It enables you to track progress, reinforce positive performance, and realign and improve unsatisfactory performance.
In fact, getting good at defining winning behaviors and constantly aligning everyone to them (through ongoing feedback) is what separates the winners from everyone else playing catch-up in today’s world.
A foundational component of Holly Green’s Performance Excellence series, Up, Down, and Sideways Feedback is a hands-on workshop that provides the tools you need to give effective feedback to bosses, direct reports and peers. In this intense half-day session, you’ll explore and practice the competencies required for providing deliberate, direct and skillful feedback that is grounded in shared responsibility and focused on the work outputs required to win.
You’ll learn how to conduct focused feedback conversations that produce:
- Mutual understanding of winning
- Clarity around issues
- Enhanced working relationships
- Resolved problems
You’ll also learn how to avoid the communication games that often disrupt the feedback process and prevent your team from winning.
Designed for leaders, managers and individual contributors at all levels, Up, Down, and Sideways Feedback includes self-assessments, group activities, practice, video, and take-away tools. You also get a follow-up series of materials to embed the learning and shift behaviors.
