Who’s this for?

Managers and leaders




One of the most challenging parts of the workplace is giving and receiving feedback courageously. Especially when we are faced with a difficult conversation, we often find ourselves avoiding, sugar-coating, clumsily landing the message or reacting defensively. While these responses are natural and common, courageous leadership requires that we develop more comfort and confidence with candid but kind conversations.

During this workshop, we will:

  • Identify personal barriers to giving courageous feedback and laser in on the inner work they need to do to improve their feedback opportunities
  • Learn how to step into the right mindset before tough conversations
  • Understand the role of empathy and vulnerability in courageous conversations
  • Explore the concept of radical candor and practice using it
  • Learn how to receive feedback without defensiveness and practice concrete strategies for doing so

After the workshop, you will have learned:

  • Strategies and frameworks to give courageous feedback and receive feedback without defensiveness
  • How to create a culture of feedback on your team
