is to support and develop our people to
be fully engaged and working at their
full potential. Good managers know how to provide feedback that is conducive to learning. A critical skill in achieving this is the art of providing a balance of reinforcing and constructive feedback with the goal of promoting mutual insight. This session will overview the facets of effective feedback, and provide opportunities for hands-on practice of these skills.
