Feedback is an essential part of successful performance management; however, it is often an underdeveloped part of a manager’s skillset. This interactive event is designed for anyone who manages people in the workplace and is interested in finding out more about providing effective feedback and the impact this can have on performance and commitment.
At this in person event, hosted at the Ulster University in collaboration with the PrOPEL Hub and the CIPD, we will discuss common pitfalls in the feedback process, some of the evidence around how it works in practice and the associated business benefits of getting it right. We will share insights from employers who have tested ‘strengths-based’ approaches to feedback. You will have the opportunity to share your own practices and learn what works for others alongside trying out some practical activities and approaches.
For a range of useful resources on performance management and details of other upcoming events, head to the PrOPEL Hub and CIPD website, follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn, subscribe to our mailing list and contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A networking lunch will be served from 12.30pm.
