Fall in Love with Feedback! A Hands-on Workshop for School Leaders on the Art of Adult-to-Adult Feedback

Fall in love with feedback! The art of feedback remains an elusive challenge for many leaders in education. In this one-day workshop we will practice giving and receiving feedback by applying communication strategies inspired by Marshall Rosenberg’s Non-Violent Communication Model. Participants will also learn about the ratio of positive to constructive feedback and its effect on teams, reflect on the relationship between feedback and courageous leadership, review the performance management model, and understand how to apply feedback to support the development of other educators.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • Effectively provide and receive feedback in a variety of scenarios
  • Articulate the importance of feedback as it relates to an individual’s growth
  • Understand how to facilitate positive cultures of feedback
  • Apply the performance management model to support employee development
  • Assess their relationship to courageous leadership
  • Identify objective vs. evaluative language
  • Appreciate how the nuances of language impact professional relationships
