How to Give & Receive Actionable Feedback
Do you ever struggle with giving feedback? You probably don't want to hurt anyone's feelings nor do you want to be a nag. What about giving feedback to your boss, do you shy away from it?
On receiving feedback, do you ever personalize what's being said and get your feelings hurt? Does the feedback sometimes sting and then you get mad and defend and/or attack? Or do you sometimes withdraw? You're not alone!
Most of us struggle with giving and getting feedback in a healthy, positive and professional way. We say we want feedback and yet we often don't handle it well from either position. So...
Join us on 11/14 so you can learn the Actionable Feedback structure and specific language to prevent much of the negativity associated with "feedback."
You'll learn structure and language to:
- give feedback
- receive feedback
- better manage up
- toot your own horn with confidence and appropriateness
- track your work, especially accomplishments, for review time
Join Us. We’d love to meet you! •

When & Where
Business Women of Silicon Valley | a sisterhood of business friends
Networking | sales, networking, success Skill Mastery | Membership
There are too many business women struggling with aloneness and loneliness.
We work from home.
We are solo business owners.
We’re in management and leadership.
We work in a male dominated profession, industry or company.
We’ve had bad experiences interacting with other business women and female bosses.
One of the biggest shortcomings for business women is not having a big enough network.
We revere self-reliance and independence so we won’t ask.
We’re skeptical and slow to warm up to one another.
We’re territorial and hold back on sharing our contacts and resources.
We criticize & compare ourselves and end up disconnected by being better than or less than.
We hide behind “being busy” because it’s easier & more comfortable than showing up to network.
Add to it…
We don’t understand the need for and context of networking. Yikes! It’s so complex.
We can change this however! We at Business Women of Silicon Valley ARE changing this!
We network to make business happen!
