Event Description

The word ‘feedback’ feels awkward and uncomfortable because semantically, it wasn’t invented for human interaction! Rocket scientists coined the term for the way their mathematical programs gave them insight into machinery performance. (You probably want to make sure your rocket doesn’t explode on the way to space and all that.)

Since then, other kinds of scientists have begun studying feedback between humans more recently, largely in nursing education, and then in educational psychology.

We’ll spend some time getting to know the ins and outs of feedback, the forgotten-yet-so-important step that underpins it all, then connect it to you and your journey.

After our event, We Need to Talk: How to Make Feedback More Effectiveyou will be able to:

  • Identify your own readiness for accepting feedback
  • Receive and work with feedback effectively
  • Articulate the kind of input you need from feedback so that you can better attain your goals
