True or false?
- Feedback is proven to be a waste of time, with no material impact on the bottom line.
- Effective managers give more negative feedback than positive.
- Feedback for CEOs and senior leaders should come strictly from superiors.
- I am very knowledgeable about how I am perceived by others in my organization.
The answer: they are all false! (Even the last one). Why?
I’ll be sharing the latest research during PPC’s next Women’s Leadership Committee meeting on April 11 in Baltimore. The lively session, Giving and Receiving Feedback: Art, Science, and Discipline, will offer lots of opportunities for group learning and real-world application. I’m thrilled to help the women who attend to become more confident and capable in giving and receiving useful feedback.
The Women’s Leadership Committee is an exciting and dynamic group. During each PPC Spring and Fall Meeting, we convene to address crucial leadership issues, open dialogue around shared experiences, and develop strategies for the future.
