Give and Receive Positive Feedback
“Let me give you some feedback”. Sounds simple right? After all we all “know” that in order to improve and grow we need feedback, right?
In reality few things are as likely to get us fully defensive as someone offering to give us some feedback. And yet we have built entire systems around giving and receiving feedback on performance, we attempt to build feedback cultures, we tie compensation and benefits to the so called progress people make based on feedback from peers.
In this session we will explore from the perspectives of human nature, systems thinking and brain science how accurate many of these assumptions are in reality. Do we really need feedback to grow and develop? Under what conditions do we perceive feedback as a threat, and under which do we welcome it with an open mind. Lastly we explore a powerful mindshift that changes the whole nature of giving and receiving feedback.
As a behavioral scientist and passionate agilist, I draw from the fields of Psychology, Behavioral Science, Complexity thinking, and Agile Coaching to help leaders and teams develop customized ways of collaborating and working that lead to a higher degree of business agility.
As a leadership and business agility coach, I help managers, leaders & HR professionals to develop proficiency in leading and coaching with agility.
An explorer at heart and passionate about learning, a key driver for me is curiosity… to constantly pursue innovation in ways of collaborating and working in the areas of Leadership, Team collaboration, and Agile HR.
I favor an evidence-based, boundary-spanning approach; I believe strongly in exploring and experimenting with how ideas, methods, and principles from different fields and disciplines can cross boundaries and form fresh solutions to the complex problems we are dealing with today.
