Cultivating Growth: A Workshop on Feedback and Growth Mindset - Workshop in Berlin

In-person workshop | Next date: 6th November 2024 | Berlin

What feedback has particularly supported your own development? Surely, something comes to mind when you consider this question. This alone shows how crucial feedback can be for our growth.

At the same time, we repeatedly observe in our workshops how uncertain many leaders feel when it comes to giving feedback. Consequently, they do not provide it often enough or in the most effective manner. Long-term, this has negative impacts on teams, organizations, and the leaders themselves, who wish for their employees to develop further.

Why your mindset matters

Besides the right technique, the context and attitude are crucial when giving feedback. It’s important to create a situation that promotes receptiveness and a willingness to learn while conveying a growth-oriented attitude. The relevant term from psychological research is “Growth Mindset,” which describes the belief that we can always grow and views challenges and feedback as opportunities for growth. This applies not only to the person receiving the feedback but also to the one giving it. Do I want to “fix” someone, so they don’t mess up as often in the future? Or do I want to help them grow from a challenge and develop further? My attitude shows on the outside and becomes evident in what I say and how I say it.

Technique and context: Feedback comes in many forms

Apart from reflecting on our attitude, it is also important to use the most effective feedback techniques and adapt them to the situation at hand. Do I want to provide feedback on a specific behavior and help the person to change it? Is it about recurring behavior patterns that have crept in? Or do I want to offer positive reinforcement and appreciation for how engaged certain employees are? In each of these cases, I will need to deliver my feedback differently to achieve the desired effect.

Practice makes perfect

In this workshop, we give you the opportunity to reflect on your attitude and provide you with tools for effective feedback. We also offer a safe space to practice and strengthen your feedback skills without pressure. Additionally, exchanging ideas with like-minded individuals on specific application cases helps you find the right approach for your particular context.

In an additional online integration session after the in-person workshop, the key skills will be reinforced and obstacles to application will be addressed.

This workshop is for you if you are:

  • A professional at all levels
  • A team leader and manager
  • An HR / people & culture professional
  • An entrepreneur and business owner
  • Committed to personal and professional growth
