Webinar Series - Giving Structured Feedback

Giving feedback - especially to volunteer peers - can be uncomfortable. Join us for a three-part webinar series to build confidence and learn a structure that strives to create connection, not conflict.

It is an all-too-familiar feeling for many of us. You just watched one of your peers fumble a skill demonstration. Or maybe you've noticed a student who is over-participating, not leaving at room for others to ask questions or share knowledge. You want to provide feedback to get things back on track, but you're worried about how it will be received. What do you do?

Giving feedback can be uncomfortable for anyone. Giving feedback to a volunteer peer can be a challenge all its own. Of all the questions staff receive from our leaders and committee chairs, questions about how to give effective feedback is one of the most common.

As a part of our annual Leadership Development Series, we're excited to offer a three-part webinar series in late January about giving structured feedback. This series will be presented by Tracy Rekart, an outstanding facilitator and leadership coach with a deep connection to the mission of The Mountaineers. The series is free to Mountaineers members.

Feedback is nuanced. Sometimes feedback surprisingly produces connection between you and another. Other times, not so much. Often, people offer feedback consciously by reviewing what they have to say and building data to prove the relevance of their feedback. Most people are unconscious about the structure of their feedback delivery, relying on what they have always done or just hoping to get through it. This course will teach you how to anchor yourself to stay on track with your feedback and structure the feedback in an interactive model that builds connection. This is an interactive course. Come with stories of feedback gone right and wrong, and be prepared for dialogue.
