North Shore Community College will hold their June Supervisors’ Connection, Best Practices in Feedback: How to Talk About Positive and Negative PerformanceWednesday, June 19, 2019, from 8-10 a.m. at NSCC’s Corporate Training Solutions (CTS), 1 Ferncroft Road, DS106, Danvers. Cost is $49 per workshop.

Giving feedback is a universal struggle in every type of relationship, and yet it is the most direct way to open up a conversation that shifts engagement and performance for the positive.  Just saying the phrase “I want to give you some feedback” is enough to trigger a defensive attitude that shuts down the willingness of the other person to listen.  Positive feedback is typically straightforward and easy to provide, while negative feedback is more complicated and difficult to deliver.

But don’t most people also do good things at work? Work that is successful and valued by clients and customers? This session will widen the view of feedback to include the ‘other side’ of performance – the good-to-great work that many employees do that goes beyond merely meeting expectations.  This workshop will help organizations, managers, and individuals learn to talk (and coach) about positive work performance.

Workshop Takeaways

  • Gain a research-based model to understand the full range of workplace actions & behaviors and learn how to apply organizational standards to identify positive and negative gradients of work performance.
  • Have a clear framework of what to see, say, and do as you observe work outcomes & the impact that lands along each segment of the performance strata.
  • Learn and practice using an interactive feedback model that opens the door for coaching conversations, and receive resources, tools, and worksheets that you can use to give better feedback in your workplace
