Leadership Series - Giving and Receiving Feedback

You asked, we listened!  In response to Member input and survey responses, we are very excited and proud to present our Leadership Skills Series!  This monthly lunch-and-learn series is presented in partnership with Leadership Saskatoon, and will provide participants with some practical and powerful leadership tools.  Each month, a Leadership Saskatoon Facilitator will provide insights and guidance for a different skill good leaders need.


What helps you receive feedback well? The answer to this question can help you improve how you deliver feedback to people in your organization. Sheila Heen, author and researcher, describes feedback as: sitting at the intersection between “wanting to learn and grow” and “wanting to be appreciated for exactly who we are”. Sometimes we have strong reactions to feedback and they become barriers to accepting the feedback. In this workshop we will explore the three main barriers to receiving feedback and strategies for improving how we deliver feedback to get the results you were aiming for, and as a leader you will learn how to flip any feedback into a tool for growth and increased success.
