Giving Clear Feedback Lunch & Learn Talk in Japan

Welcome to our “Giving Clear Feedback” lunch and learn talk in Japan. Effective feedback is a cornerstone of professional development and organizational growth, yet many individuals find it challenging to deliver feedback in a clear, constructive manner. In this session, we will explore the importance of giving clear feedback in the workplace and provide practical strategies for delivering feedback effectively. Clear and actionable feedback not only helps individuals improve their performance but also fosters a culture of open communication and continuous learning within the organization.

In Japan, where hierarchical structures and respect for authority are deeply ingrained in business culture, providing feedback can be particularly nuanced. This session aims to equip participants with the skills and confidence to deliver feedback with clarity, sensitivity, and professionalism. By mastering the art of giving clear feedback, participants can empower their colleagues to reach their full potential, drive performance improvements, and contribute to the overall success of the organization.

Talk Objectives:

  1. Understanding the Purpose of Feedback: Clarify the purpose and importance of giving feedback in the workplace. Discuss how constructive feedback contributes to individual growth, team dynamics, and organizational performance.
  2. Developing a Feedback Mindset: Cultivate a mindset that views feedback as a valuable tool for growth and development rather than criticism or personal attack. Explore the benefits of creating a feedback-rich culture where feedback is given and received openly and constructively.
  3. Identifying Clear Feedback Criteria: Define clear criteria and expectations for effective feedback, including specificity, relevance, and timeliness. Discuss the importance of aligning feedback with organizational goals and individual performance objectives.
  4. Active Listening and Observation: Develop active listening and observation skills to gather accurate and relevant information before providing feedback. Encourage participants to listen attentively, observe behaviours, and gather evidence to support their feedback.
  5. Framing Feedback Effectively: Learn how to frame feedback in a clear, non-judgmental, and respectful manner. Explore techniques for structuring feedback using the Situation-Behaviour-Impact (SBI) model or the “sandwich” approach to provide both positive reinforcement and areas for improvement.
  6. Providing Actionable Recommendations: Offer actionable recommendations and suggestions for improvement when providing feedback. Ensure that feedback is specific, actionable, and focused on behaviours that can be changed or improved.
  7. Encouraging Two-Way Communication: Foster a culture of open communication and dialogue where individuals feel comfortable giving and receiving feedback. Discuss the importance of inviting input and encouraging questions or clarifications during feedback conversations.
  8. Managing Emotions and Reactions: Develop strategies for managing emotions and reactions during feedback conversations, both as a giver and receiver of feedback. Explore techniques for staying calm, empathetic, and professional in challenging situations.
  9. Following Up and Monitoring Progress: Establish mechanisms for following up on feedback and monitoring progress towards agreed-upon goals or areas for improvement. Discuss the importance of ongoing support, coaching, and recognition in the feedback process.
  10. Continuous Learning and Improvement: Embrace a mindset of continuous learning and improvement in giving feedback. Encourage participants to seek feedback on their feedback-giving skills, reflect on their experiences, and refine their approach over time.

By mastering the art of giving clear feedback, participants can contribute to a culture of excellence, accountability, and continuous improvement within their teams and organizations.
