Workshop | The Art of Feedback

Deliver and receive feedback like a gift

Providing feedback in a constructive, meaningful and appreciative way is an art that not only requires several skills. It also needs to take into account various factors such as culture, timing, situation and hierarchy.

While the famous "sandwich feedback“ technique may already be known by many people, this workshop goes beyond that. It's also focused on how to reinforce positive behaviour in a more meaningful way, as well as on how to provide critical feedback with an attitude of appreciation.

This workshop will as well introduce the approach of non-violent communication (Marshall Rosenberg) as a way to structure the feedback but more importantly to get into the right attitude when providing feedback. You will learn and experience techniques and approaches to address your feedback in the most effective and helpful way, without losing connection with your counterpart.

Three different aproachs for staying connected 

  • How to effectively reinforce someone’s behavior

  • How to structure a feedback in a non-violent way

  • How to provide critical feedback with appreciation
