Giving and Receiving Feedback Webinar

Part 1


Do you get feedback on your writing at work, or are you the one who gives the feedback? Either way, you’re part of a relationship between feedback giver and feedback receiver. By treating that relationship with care, you can develop your writing and feedback skills, and your workplace relationships.

In this two-part video series, Anne Janzer and Erin Lebacqz take on the feedback process.

Learning Objectives

In Feedback - Part One, Anne helps you ask for and provide feedback with care, thereby setting up the feedback process for success.

  • How can we best ask for feedback on our writing?
  • How can we best provide feedback on others’ writing?
  • How can we preserve (or even strengthen) relationships in the process?
