Giving feedback to employees is a key part of leadership, but it’s often something leaders avoid. One of the reasons is because leaders may feel like they don’t know how to give effective feedback, or feel that the feedback doesn’t change behavior anyway. Research shows that they may be right – one in three feedback sessions actually leads to a decrease in performance. This workshop describes evidence-based strategies for giving feedback that improves performance and enhances relationships between leaders and followers. It includes a role play exercise to practice these skills and develop a structure for effective feedback meetings.

Workshop highlights:

  • Setting clear performance goals for feedback
  • Practicing feedback language that improves relationships between leaders and followers
  • Learning how to structure an effective feedback meeting

Presenter: Lily Cushenbery, Associate Professor of Management, College of Business, Stony Brook University

A certificate for 2 Professional Development Hours (.2 CEU's) will be emailed after the workshop.
