Leadership Conversations – Feedback & Development


Start growing and developing the people you lead

The Centre for Coaching Leadership Conversation – Feedback & Development, is a one-day course forming part of a series of six Leadership Conversations courses in collaboration with the UCT GSB. This short course teaches participants the basics of giving and receiving developmental feedback, incorporating elements of Integral theory. The goal is to create a more collaborative environment where team members can listen and speak freely as they develop.

Who will benefit from this course?

You will benefit from this course if you are an Executive, Manager, or Emerging Leader seeking to develop and grow their teams and those around them through understanding constructive, developmental feedback mechanisms.

What will I gain from this course?

This is what you will gain from the Leadership Conversation – Feedback & Development course:

  • An understanding of feedback conversations to ensure that they are constructive and inspire growth
  • Learning about the theory of feedback and how to adapt it to real-life situations
  • Improved self-awareness and understanding of own contribution to leadership challenges
  • Recognising the myths around feedback and why parties avoid having conversations around it
  • Moving from a place of one-dimensional feedback to conversations that are more engaging, leading to performance improvement

Our short courses deliver learning experiences that are personally transformative because better people make better leaders.

Whilst theory is interesting, in fact leadership is best learned through practice.  For that reason, this course is run in an experiential way, using a live-virtual approach on Zoom. Participants are asked to be willing to be fully themselves, fully engaged, open to being honest about themselves and their relationship to giving or receiving feedback in their life (no role plays) and to be prepared to find out more about themselves as leaders and human beings,
