About the Program

Feedback is essential to our success as it provides information about how we are interacting with others, expectations and progressing on competencies that define our career success. In this session, the presenters will dive into: deciphering feedback when it is unclear, converting feedback into a feed forward framework, and strategizing for success using information received including how to ask for what is needed to fully achieve career goals. Feedback looks backward on performance and what didn’t work. This feed forward discussion will focus on planning with a mindset of what can be in the future. This session will be interactive.
