Mastering the Art of Giving and Receiving Constructive Feedback

Feedback and criticisms do not have to hurt - learn how to deliver effective feedback that actually helps

Starting on 26 December 2020
USD 49

About the course: 

Do you feel uncomfortable giving people feedback, especially if they are in the form of negative feedback? Do you also dread being on the receiving end of feedback? Perhaps the terms “performance review” and “appraisals” make your heart sink whenever you hear of them? Don’t worry - you are not alone! After all, it’s natural to fear receiving negative feedback and becoming demoralised or frustrated as a result. 

But when done properly and appropriately, giving and receiving feedback can be a powerful means for us to develop and improve ourselves. 

Properly formed constructive feedback can: 

  • Provide a fresh perspective and give the person receiving feedback valuable insights that he or she may not realise on his or her own. 
  • Inspire the person receiving the feedback to effect positive change.
  • Reduce confusion with regards to expectations and performance. 
  • Improve employee morale and make a workplace more productive and harmonious. 

During this course you will learn:  

  • What kind of feedback helps, and what kind of feedback hurts. 
  • What are the benefits of giving and receiving constructive feedback? 
  • How you can frame negative feedback in such a way that they would actually be helpful and meaningful for the recipient. 
  • How to develop better verbal and non-verbal communication skills. 
  • To open your mind and heart to receiving feedback from others, and turning these feedback into opportunities for improvement.
