Feedback Without Fear: Coaching that Builds Employee Engagement & Retention

Managers often feel uncomfortable providing communication feedback to their teams. They worry about defensiveness and negative reactions. And yet, employees crave constructive feedback.

This webinar will teach you how to connect with employees so that you’re perceived as a supportive mentor rather than a critical boss. This includes reducing your fear and discomfort in providing constructive feedback and building exceptional communication skills among your direct reports.

Session Overview

Studies show that employees who don’t receive constructive feedback are more likely to look for another job. But let’s face it, providing in-the-moment feedback on communication skills can be tricky and a bit daunting. There are several reasons for this, and any of them can lead to unintended results, which can be as damaging to the employee and the business as providing no feedback at all.

First, you may feel uneasy about delivering a negative message, or maybe you’re afraid of hurting your employees’ feelings. Second, they may not be ready to hear what you have to say and become overwhelmed or defensive. As a manager, addressing issues as they arise is your responsibility and will enable you to build capability among your direct reports.

According to the 2021 Employee Turnover Trends report published by Quantum Workplace, “Employees who regularly receive constructive feedback are less likely to be searching for other jobs and two times more likely to say they will be working at their current company in the next year.”

This webinar offers the guidance you need to provide actionable feedback with attainable results that will become the basis of a trusted mentor-mentee relationship leading to more successful employees and better business outcomes.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is useful for managers who provide communication feedback to their direct reports. It is especially useful for sales managers and others who routinely conduct “ride-alongs” or shadow team members when meeting with customers.

Key Learning Objectives

During the webinar, you’ll learn how to connect with employees in a way that resonates with them. We’ll also eliminate the discomfort you may feel when providing one-to-one feedback. This includes how to

  • Show up for your employees and be the role model they need
  • Use goals your employees set for themselves as your guiding star when providing specific and actionable feedback
  • Leverage peoples’ strengths
  • Implement an effective step-by-step coaching model to meet them where they are and simplify feedback
  • Keep coaching conversations positive and on the right track
