WEMBA The Power of Giving and Receiving Feedback Workshop

WEMBA The Power of Giving and Receiving Feedback Workshop

Feedback is often viewed as a one way interaction, meant to deliver bad news. Receivers are expected to take feedback well, no matter how poorly delivered. But what if we could see these interactions as opportunities to connect with others in a meaningful way?

Consider options to unlock your untapped potential in both giving and receiving feedback from Wharton executive coach Lilly Linton. During this session, Lilly will share tips, ideas, and practical frameworks to put to use immediately.

Understanding the opportunities that lie within each interaction is key, as many do not recognize the difference between a fruitful exchange and a meaningless one.

Rather than checking a box, learn how to unlock this leadership super power and start your journey to increasing your credibility and connections with others.

The workshop is predominantly discussions driven, with an emphasis on how a leader and/or his/her team might use this assessment data to lead more effectively.
