The Importance of Giving and Receiving Effective Feedback in the Workplace
The benefits of feedback in the workplace are many. However, feedback needs to be given and received effectively.
Giving effective feedback means achieving the desired results while, at the same time, making sure that all parties involved are respected.
Receiving feedback effectively means making the most of feedback and seeing it as a learning opportunity, rather than as a personal attack.
Giving and receiving feedback is important both for constructive feedback (whereby you seek to change or improve behavior) and positive feedback (for reinforcing good behavior).
Unfortunately, many people do not know how to receive and give feedback effectively. Some people are unclear or come across as aggressive when giving feedback. When it comes to receiving feedback, some people go on the defensive or refuse to accept responsibility.
The good news is that giving and receiving feedback is a skill that people can learn.
Training your employees and managers on giving and receiving feedback effectively at work can reap many benefits, including:
- Reducing conflict
- Reducing errors
- Improving productivity
- Supporting staff engagement and motivation
- Increasing productivity
Our ‘Giving and Receiving Effective Feedback in the Workplace’ training course materials are designed to help learners develop their feedback skills.

This training package provides enough materials to teach a half a day (about 3 hours) workshop.
As the training materials are customizable, however, you can edit them to run longer or shorter sessions as required. The length will also depend on how many participants you have and on how much time you would like to spend on activities and discussions.
These materials are suitable for those who are new to the topic of giving and receiving feedback, as well as for those who would like to refresh their knowledge.
Outline and Objectives
The aim of the feedback in the workplace training course materials is to help participants understand how to give and receive both positive and corrective feedback.
At the end of the course, your participants should be able to:
✔ Identify why feedback is important and what the different types of feedback are.
✔ Develop skills and implement plans to give effective feedback.
✔ Develop best practices to seek and receive feedback.

These training materials are designed to be trainer-led.
So, they are for corporate or freelance trainers to deliver in a class environment, either face-to-face or virtually (using classroom management software such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or other platforms).
Even if these materials are for trainers to deliver, we strongly believe that participants learn better if they are actively engaged.
