Course giving and receiving feedback

Giving feedback can be unintentionally hurtful and is often avoided for this or other reasons. As a result, an important instrument to steer employees and/or each other remains partly unused. But when the message is communicated properly, feedback on behaviour can actually encourage change and growth.

In the training 'Giving and receiving feedback ', you learn to give (and receive) feedback in a constructive way, which leads to undesired behaviour being adjusted and to cooperation being stimulated. With the right techniques, you can ensure that employees are extra motivated and productive, but also dare to be open to receiving and giving feedback. After the training you are able to create an open (and thus constructive) communication atmosphere in your work environment.


The following topics, among others, can be covered during the training:

  • Mapping communication processes
  • Giving and receiving feedback in the right way
  • Apply result-oriented questioning techniques
  • Distinguishing between non-verbal, paralingual and verbal behaviour
  • Confrontational interviewing techniques
  • Stimulating self-reflection
  • Encouraging others to give feedback
  • Dealing with one's own emotions and thoughts (through RET)
  • Listening, summarising and questioning
  • Targeted communication
  • Dealing with criticism
  • Dealing with difficult situations and emotions
  • Maintaining calm during a conversation
  • Drawing conclusions and making arrangements


After the training:

  • You know how to give constructive feedback
  • Have you experienced what kind of influence the way of communicating feedback has
  • Have you learned how to ask and receive feedback?
  • know the difference between feedback, criticism and advice
  • you have tools to respond to emotions and tensions
