Forward with correct feedback
Getting feedback is often not pleasant. And when giving it, people fear negative reactions, defensiveness or being attacked in return. As a result, people quickly get anxious when they hear the word feedback. So, why do we actually give feedback? How valuable is it and how can we best deal with it?
Feedback can be very valuable. The purpose of feedback is to give the other person insight into the situation. This way you can look at it together and discuss possible solutions. Meaningful feedback means a respectful exchange of information that benefits the shared goal.
People have started to dislike ‘feedback’ because it has been used as an underhanded way to plainly criticise and complain. In this workshop we will look at feedback as it was meant, an instrument to achieve goals together. For example, you learn how to discuss an irritating habit your partner or colleague has, without making this as a criticism.
This creative and active workshop is a composed of theory, a demonstration, exercise and ends with an exercise and evaluation. This workshop is mainly focused on providing tools, gain inspiration and collaborating creatively and actively with others.

“Thank you for your help and also for our personal conversations that taught me much about myself and provided what I needed to deal with new situations better. Communication is a choice and every situation offers a new opportunity to make a different choice when wanting to deal with situations better. By being a positive influence I can guide conversations in the right direction.” – Nancy
