What you will learn:

The only thing worse than getting harsh criticism from your manager is getting none at all, especially when you are far away from them. As human beings, we all need constructive feedback on a regular basis in order to correct our mistakes, build on our strengths and remain both motivated and connected with our work and workmates, especially when we are working remotely.

This highly engaging and practical Elective will help participants clarify the differences between the 'necessary evil' of annual, formal performance reviews and the many benefits of more regular, informal feedback. Leaners will come away with an understanding of the nuances and complexities of giving and receiving feedback when people are very different and/or far away and will be able to go beyond the now-outdated and unhelpful concepts of 'negative and positive feedback'. Employees will learn and practice how to give (and receive) informal feedback - in a safe, supportive environment, with immediate constructive feedback - with subordinates, peers and even remote bosses.
