Feedback and Leadership: Creating Constructive Learning Cultures for Today’s Organizations

The one crucial skill distinguishing good leadership from bad is the ability to give – and receive – feedback, vital to the learning process. Fortunately, giving and receiving feedback is a skill and thus – like any other skill – can be learned. We will examine how to tailor feedback to the individual, the situation and company culture, using practical examples from your own workday experience. We will also consider cultural-level determinants such as the cross-cultural range of expectations and gender-differentiated communication systems, alongside individual-level variations in work preference. At the end of this course, you will get more confidence, practice and comfort with giving and receiving quality feedback in the professional context, which enables you to become a more mindful and empathetic leader or team member.
