Constructive Feedback

Three participants sitting at a table, working on an exercise togetherThere is an art to giving feedback that is useful, factual and most important of all, is constructive. Receiving feedback is essential for any kind of personal or skills development. How well feedback is given can make all the difference to whether it is received, understood and then acted upon.

We developed this course on Constructive Feedback initially as part of our Communications Skills workshop. We found that it was so popular that clients asked to book further, more advanced sessions.

We therefore developed a range of workshops about Constructive Feedback to meet that demand. We can cover the essential basics, or go into greater depth, examining very delicate or difficult situations where we want or need to give feedback and it is important to get a clear message across effectively.

These are some of the topics we may include in a Constructive Feedback training course:

  • When is it appropriate to give feedback
  • Judging how much feedback to give
  • Handling emotional situations
  • Feedback vs criticism
  • What is your feedback hoping to achieve?
  • Different styles of feedback
  • Verbal tips for effective feedback
  • Making feedback a positive experience
  • Maintaining your integrity
  • How to give difficult feedback
  • Giving feedback to people who are resistant or upset
  • Helping people to give themselves useful feedback
