Track: Collaboration, wednesday 11:20 - 12:10
Successful collaboration between two people in any context requires both to give and receive feedback, yet our schools and organisations teach us nothing about how to do so effectively. We'll explore some simple rules for giving and receiving feedback, observe how most people give ineffective feedback to others and illustrate examples of applying the rules to make it more effective.
