Deep Dive Workshop: Feedback for Improvement

Deep Dive Workshop: Feedback for Improvement
Date and time
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM, January 16, 2020

Constructive feedback can be a gift, but often the feedback we give is ineffective. This is particularly true when it comes to giving feedback on areas where improvement is needed, whether this feedback comes in the form of yearly reviews, ADPs, grading, etc. Others may dismiss our feedback, become angry and defensive, or feel frustrated and unsure of how to improve their performance. As a result, relationships are damaged and valuable opportunities for growth are lost. 

Giving effective feedback is an art, and this session will help you learn how to regularly provide constructive feedback that reinforces desired behaviors in others and identifies ways people can make positive changes. 

In this interactive session, we will do the following: 

  • Investigate the characteristics of effective and ineffective feedback. 
  • Learn how our traditional approaches to giving feedback are often ineffective and destructive. 
  • Explore how people respond to feedback and why ineffective feedback is often rejected and fails to promote behavior change. 
  • Practice giving effective feedback for improvement. 
  • Examine our current approaches to giving feedback and make concrete plans for how we can provide others with effective feedback for improvement. 

This Deep Dive Workshop is free for Missouri State faculty and staff, but seats are limited and pre-registration is required
