Black Nonprofit Leaders Group - The Art & Power of Feedback
Offering feedback that is transformative
When you think about feedback in your organization, what comes to mind for you?
For many, feedback is tied exclusively to performance management and is not a tool that makes them stronger and better employees.
For others, providing feedback to colleagues is a necessary process that is far from enjoyable.
What if, instead of being a task we dread and one that comes with disappointment, feedback could be transformative and generative?
What if we embraced seeking and giving feedback as a tool to deepen employee engagement and strengthen our work relationships? What if we embraced feedback as a tool to get us closer to mastery?
During this virtual session, participants will have an opportunity to learn how to take their communication and feedback skills to the next level.
As facilitator for the Black Nonprofit Leaders Group (BNLG), Jessica Sharp will engage attendees in a conversation about feedback - we will discuss why feedback is a poorly used tool and why it is imperative that we shift how we provide information to others.
She will share several practical tools and best practices to help attendees better give and receive feedback.
To become more fulfilled employees who feel a deep sense of community, we must do a better job of sharing and seeking out feedback.
Join the BNLG Leadership Team and your peers on January 25 from 8:30 - 9:30 AM to begin the process of being exceptional at giving and receiving feedback!
