With as little as $5, you can help amplify our giving. Learn more here.

In the workplace we are constantly giving or receiving feedback. Sometimes this feedback is positive and sometimes it is negative. But what are we taking away from those conversations? Are we able to reflect on the feedback and apply it? Are we giving feedback in a way that our employees or co-workers understand that they are valued? Join the conversation with UT Career Consultants Amanda Olson (MSTC) and Max Kozinn (MBA) as we talk about the importance of giving and receiving feedback:

  • How do we articulate what is happening that needs to change? 
  • How do we listen to feedback without taking offense? 
  • How do we coach our staff through a problem? 
  • How can we apply feedback strategies to become better employees and future leaders?

Key takeaways:

  • After participating in this conversation, you will be able to receive and apply feedback in both a positive and informative way.
  • We will learn how to give feedback in a way that creates open conversations.
