Upcoming Events


Giving and Receiving Feedback (even when you don’t want to)

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for a workshop about giving and receiving feedback with Amy Gallo!

We all know that we’re supposed to give feedback to our colleagues and ask for it in return. But that’s often easier said than done, especially because emotions run high in these sorts of difficult conversations. In this workshop Amy Gallo, contributing editor at Harvard Business Review and author of HBR Guide to Dealing with Conflict, combines management research and practical insights to help you:

  • Understand the importance of a feedback-rich culture and your role in creating one
  • Learn new approaches for giving and receiving feedback
  • Develop increased confidence in navigating tricky feedback situations, such as disagreeing with someone more senior and giving input to a peer
