Course Objectives

Do you want to become better at giving feedback? Or wish you would receive more feedback, but aren’t sure how to ask for it? Perhaps, you want to be able to handle a difficult conversation more constructively?

Whatever the workplace issue at stake – it could be addressing someone’s behaviour or work performance or receiving feedback that you disagree with – being able to approach feedback and difficult conversations constructively is a crucial skill for managers and staff.

This course will help you gain the skills and confidence you need to discuss workplace issues when they arise, including asking for, giving and receiving feedback more effectively. The workshops for managers and staff are very similar, and the main difference lies in the scenarios used.
