On Demand Workshop

How feedback (giving but more importantly receiving) fuels a culture of growth.


When people are asked to list their most difficult conversations, feedback always emerges. In general, people don’t give feedback well, and on the flipside, don’t receive it well. But without feedback we stagnate. Learning about ourselves can be brutal, and feedback doesn’t mean you have to take it all; but how you engage in the conversation makes all difference. Feedback is a gift and your ability to accept it opens doors to growth, insight, and self-awareness. This highly participative workshop uses role-play, coaching and reflection to understand why feedback is hard to give and receive, and to hone our skills in doing both.

As well as original Smart Savvy content, we draw valuable insights from the book, Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well, by Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen.


This workshop is for any leader who wants to improve their ability to receive, give, and encourage feedback, to better develop people, clear obstacles, and improve performance and results.

What you’ll learn

  • The three main types of feedback that work and when to give them
  • Why receiving feedback is hard – and the triggers that get in your way
  • How to extract valuable info about you, your performance, and the giver’s true intentions when you’re on the receiving end
  • How others can spot blind spots and things that get in our way
  • The secret to giving feedback
  • How you can encourage more feedback
