The Feedback Loop How to Create a Culture of Feedback

Giving, receiving, asking for, and acting on feedback well are some of the most-valued – yet difficult to master – skills for any manager. After years of research across hundreds of companies in 25+ countries, Claire Lew, CEO of Know Your Team, shares the playbook for how the most effective managers create a culture of feedback within their teams.


During our hands-on workshop session, we'll take you through:


  • Why leaders are constantly the last to know things in their company 
  • The top leadership blindspots are and how you can avoid them
  • How to uncover your own leadership blindspots
  • How to get honest feedback, especially from your most introverted employees
  • The best questions to be asking every single employee in your company
  • How to hold an effective one-on-one with an employee
  • How to receive feedback without getting defensive
  • What to do with feedback you disagree with 
  • How to tell what feedback to act on 
  • What to do with feedback once you receive it
  • How to break bad news to your team
  • How to give employee feedback without damaging morale
  • The components of building an open, honest company culture


You’ll walk away with techniques, best practices, and a toolset you can put into practice immediately. We'll help everyone on your team – even your most introverted and, well, cynical colleagues – internalize how to give, receive, ask for, and act on feedback well.


If you’re a manager or aspiring manager, this workshop is for you.
