That Will Never Work: Giving Feedback that Sparks Brilliance in Others (Kara Minotti Becker)

Abstract:
Having to give feedback on someone else’s work is enough to keep us all up at night. Managers, coaches, subject matter experts and colleagues, we all grapple with how best to put our knowledge to use for others. And if giving feedback is hard, encouraging someone to open to new ideas can be even harder.
Yet in the Agile organization, where collaboration is king, mastering the art of feedback is crucial. From code reviews to coaching, design cycles to demos, the feedback and iteration loop is a constant.
Great reviews by experienced colleagues and leaders can make the difference between good enough and truly brilliant. Done poorly, reviews can crush ingenuity and destroy motivation, resulting in innovative solutions that never see the light of day.
In this hands-on workshop, practice a practical, straightforward method of giving feedback that sparks ideas and fans the flames of motivation. Move from critiquing, to contributing and inspiring. Make respectful, highly productive and fun review sessions a signature part of your skillset.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Give work-product (strategy, code, design, writing, etc.) feedback for the best possible results.
  • Hold respectful, productive and fun review sessions, on any kind of work, using a straightforward method you get to practice live.
  • Spark ideas that are much better than your own, and delight when your suggestions are not taken.
  • Experience practice in something we almost never get to practice safely: giving feedback on another’s work.
  • Learn how it feels to receive feedback that stirs your creativity and ignites your motivation.
