The Science of Feedback – Three Essentials for Every Project Leader

Feedback is arguably one of the most important competencies needed for leadership and performance management. It is a process that derives high performance, fuels motivation and when done effectively strengthens and improves relationships. Unfortunately, feedback is also among the most difficult competencies to master. We live in a culture where soft skills are minimized. Most people are lucky if they receive training on how to give feedback, let alone how to receive feedback.

As a result of this presentation, participants will walk away with:

• Ways to self-manage and receive feedback well
• A model for promoting high quality motivation during feedback
• Four skills for creating psychological safety with feedback
