Winter Leadership Program

Giving and Receiving Feedback Up, Down and Across an Organization

Sponsored by District 31 Toastmasters

Have you ever had to give someone feedback and weren’t sure how best to present your thoughts so that the conversation is helpful, motivating and non-confrontational?  We often have a need to provide others with feedback, whether it’s providing feedback to someone you manage, sharing feedback with your management, or giving feedback to a peer.  How that message is delivered will determine the effectiveness of the conversation. We work in a diverse world where gender, race, culture, and a plethora of other factors impact how people respond to feedback. Therefore, it is crucial to understand how to tailor our message for the individual with whom we are speaking.  It doesn’t end there, however! The recipient plays a key role in this dialogue, and understanding how you react to various forms of feedback delivery can help you become a better feedback recipient. Feedback, given and received, helps us grow in our careers.

At the first event in the District 31 Leadership Program Series, we will hear five panelists from varying industries share their thoughts on how best to deliver and receive feedback tailored to a diverse workforce with unique needs.  At the end of the discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to break into small workshop-style coaching sessions where they can openly discuss feedback related challenges and ask in-depth questions of our panelists.
