Course description

Giving Effective Feedback

As human beings, we often hunger for feedback. However, many people will tell you that when they do get feedback, it’s often because of something they have done wrong. This one-day course is designed to help workplace leaders learn how to provide feedback any time that the message is due. Whether feedback is formal or informal, and whether it is provided to employees, peers, or someone else, there are ways that it can be structured to be effective and lasting.

This course will help participants learn why the way we deliver is feedback is important, how to deliver a message so that people accept it and make changes that may be needed, and how to accept feedback that we are offered.

This workshop will teach participants learn how to:

  • Explain why feedback is essential
  • Apply a framework for providing formal or informal feedback

Training content


To start, participants will learn some key terms about feedback. They will also explore some situations where different kinds of feedback would be needed.

Speaking Clearly

When providing feedback, you want to make sure that people are hearing what it is that you are saying. This session will help participants make sure that the language that they use is descriptive and clear. Techniques on staying neutral will also be discussed.

Communication Strategies

This session will help participants improve communication skills that are essential to giving good feedback, including questioning techniques, probing tools, and ways to manage their non-verbal messages.

Characteristics of Effective Feedback

Next, participants will learn about the six characteristics of effective feedback. We will also share a framework for formal and informal feedback discussions. Participants will then apply their new skills to a case study and to examples from their own lives.

Receiving Feedback Graciously
