How we receive feedback has a history in our past. We will explore the beliefs we have around what feedback means, and our relationship to hearing it. We will also work through some steps that can be used when you are wanting to offer feedback, to get clarity and to deliver feedback in a way it can be received, and in ways that are equitable and caring. We will partner with other’s to support our processing, and enjoy connection, empathy and learning.

This workshop is for anyone who has ever taken messages of “wrongness” or “badness” when receiving feedback,  been afraid to give feedback, or need to give feedback at work.
