Research shows that feedback is critical for leaders and that creating a culture of feedback is key to a team’s success. The more successful a team is, the better an organization’s bottom line. However, there is an art to giving and receiving feedback and if not done properly, feedback can have a negative impact to morale. Conversely, teams who receive feedback in a positive, supportive way will strive to continue to do well.
There can be a gender dimension to giving and receiving feedback that is critical for women in leadership roles to understand, as men and women react differently. In this course, Professor Deborah Streeter will examine the gender dimensions of giving and receiving feedback and will explore strategies for working as effectively as possible to lead a high-performing team.
