Everyday we receive feedback, whether solicited
Everyday we receive feedback, whether solicited or not. Feedback that comes in both verbal and non-verbal forms is so crucial to our growth and understanding of how to navigate society. Yet it can be so challenging at times to accept and apply.
The ability to filter the feedback and find the information applicable to the situation and our needs is not an easy task. We may find ourselves thinking, “Why is this person giving me feedback?” “What makes them an expert in this matter?” “They don’t even appreciate the positive things that I have accomplished.”
However, feedback can be beneficial for not only the recipient but the giver. Maximizing its benefits takes skill and practice. It is an art. This interactive workshop will allow us to channel our inner feedback Picasso. In both large and small groups, participants both novice and expert will discuss the art of listening.
- List the three forms of feedback both verbal and non-verbal
- Identify feedback triggers that inhibit listening and application
- Create strategies responses to feedback using non-evaluative language
