The Truth Doesn’t Have to Hurt: Essential Strategies for Providing Feedback
One of the many roles of a manager? Provide feedback.
“Sure, I have positive feedback but… I need to let my team know the areas I need to see improvement”
If you want great results from your team and to motivate and retain great people, there's no better way than communicating - good, bad, or ugly.
This step-by-step workshop combines practical with personal while teaching you:
- The current trends related to feedback, learning, improvement, and success
- Why providing feedback to your team improves culture and results
- When to use healthy humor to keep tensions low in any situation
- What frequent, honest, helpful feedback can do for your team
- Why you have been avoiding and under-delivering feedback
Your opinion is important, but it’s not the only one that matters
- Connect, collaborate, and truly listen to your team members (they provide feedback too!)
- Reflective listening practices that increase engagement and communication
Take the ‘dread’ out of performance reviews for both managers AND team members
- Provide feedback that empowers your employee- not tears them down or deflates them
- Master clear communication strategies that keep tensions low and results high
Change the narrative to make feedback part of the process, not just an annual meeting
- Start the conversation: provide feedback regularly to improve the work environment
- Give feedback everyday- get employees who are engaged everyday

What our Passionate Fans gained from our programs that will help them do their job better
"Being an assertive communicator which shows respect for both parties. I will also try to break the bad habits by using words that discount my reputation with others." – A. Jones
"The Progressive Women's Leadership program has had a remarkable impact on my management and communication styles. Their unique focus on the woman’s perspective increases the relevance of the courses to a level I have not previously encountered. In addition to teaching practical strategies and tips that I am able to implement immediately, additional suggested materials help continue my learning after a course ends. All of this has made Progressive Women’s Leadership one of the most valuable learning experiences since receiving my MBA. I am looking forward to continuing my leadership education with them." – K. Goldbach
"I gained so many valuable tips that will help me do my job better. In the live presentation I learned how to be an assertive communicator by using the right words, putting the subject line first and not feeling guilty when saying 'no.' There were so many excellent tips that I can implement to be a more effective, confident communicator. In the materials, I learned how to structure thought processes and use a 9 step approach to provide a crisp and clear core idea so that all stakeholders buy in at the end." – B. Pasceri
"The live presentation was great! It gave me skills to be a stronger communicator and how to say 'no.' What also resonated with me was one of the first presentations when we had to sort the words into two categories. It made me realize that I may have one, and am thinking a specific way, but my staff may not be thinking the same way that I am. Very interesting." – W. Adler
"Establishing a personal mission statement is a new concept that I believe will keep me constantly thinking on how to improve. There were so many helpful tips within this course that I have already implemented and am already seeing results. I am extremely pleased with this course." – J. Rios
