The Art of Giving and Receiving Feedback (Replay)

“Feedback” is so much more than that special section of our Toastmasters meetings where we receive an immediate evaluation of our speech. If only it worked like that in “real life” too!

Throughout both our personal and professional lives, we are often faced with giving, as well as receiving feedback. At work, for instance, you may be both on the giving and receiving end. It’s an important part of employee evaluations, but also of daily interactions with colleagues, employees, and supervisors.

At home, feedback is an important part of any healthy relationship – with your children, parents, spouse, siblings, and friends.

But are we doing it in the best possible way?

Come learn from our three excellent panelists how you can turn feedback giving & receiving from basic skills to an art form.

Our panelists are:

Dorrette Keen: Distinguished Toastmaster and a Certified John C. Maxwell Speaker Speaker, Trainer, and Coach. Dorrette has been empowering individuals and groups in Business and Not for Profit arenas, motivating, and inspiring them to step out of their comfort zones and go beyond, sometimes their own unrealized limits, placed on themselves. 

Andre Kelly: Distinguished Toastmaster, CEO and Founder of Public Speaking, a certified professional speaker, corporate trainer, and coach, having presented over three hundred motivational talks on platforms all across the world.

Donna Marrah: certified John Maxwell Coach, Speaker and Trainer, who works with organizations to develop leaders. She provides coaching, speaking, training and mentoring services to assist individuals in achieving personal and professional growth. 

Learn from these three exceptional speakers!

  • How to become intentional about giving valuable feedback in the workplace
  • How to position yourself to receive feedback in the workplace
  • The importance of using feedback to grow yourself and others in the workplace
  • Listen to understand, not to answer
  • Learn about the people you want to influence
  • Prepare in advance for difficult conversations.
