Juniper summer event 2018: What does good feedback look like?
We aimed to make this year better than ever, focusing on the challenge of giving feedback. Through an acted scenario, our guests witnessed a workplace situation and then helped coach our character to give constructive feedback to his colleague. Giving constructive feedback demonstrates care and courage from the person giving it. It is much easier just to keep quiet, especially in cases where corrective feedback is needed, but if you can overcome this obstacle, you and your team will benefit.
Considering personality styles, values and job roles, we explored appropriate ways of giving feedback and holding effective conversations to reach shared goals. We answered the big questions, too: how do you approach feedback in an awkward situation? How can you adapt if the conversation takes a turn?
