Coaching, Giving and Receiving FeedbacK
Any great leader is worth their weight in their ability to leverage the strengths and talents of each individual they have the privilege of leading.
Coaching requires 6 key emotional intelligence skills to be firing on all cylinders. In this session, we will dive into the collective use of self-actualization, empathy, reality testing, interpersonal relationships, assertiveness, and emotional self-awareness to advance our leadership skill of coaching.
Included in this session is the art of giving and receiving feedback. Feedback is a critical skill for every leader and most are unproductive in this arena. The most common errors are giving feedback ‘formally’ within our prescriptive authority as the manager, providing sandwich feedback (good-bad-good), and sticking to feedback at only certain times of the year (surprise! performance review!). This session will challenge the status quo of old thinking and behaviours for feedback by expanding our personal views on how individuals grow, our capacity to lead effectively by focusing on strength-based feedback just as often, if not more often than weakness based feedback, and creating a culture of feedback the entire team/organization is a part of.
