Business Leadership Luncheon


Develop Great Leaders with Feedback that Gets Heard

Feedback is the breakfast of champions. So why do most of us go hungry?

Asking for honest feedback is difficult because we are fearful of what we might hear. Giving honest feedback is equally hard: many of us have been socialized to avoid conflict, and that impulse hampers our ability to offer direct feedback. Yet without that honest feedback, how can we know how to grow as individuals? How can we help others grow?

This year’s Business Leadership community luncheon features Jim Ludema and Amber Johnson from the Center for Values-Driven Leadership at Benedictine University, who will tackle the topic of giving feedback that gets heard, through Appreciative Feedback. Built on the Appreciative Inquiry methodology, Appreciative Feedback provides leaders with a positive, strengths-based approach for addressing challenges and building high capacity with team members.

Come learn a new approach to giving feedback (that works!), while networking with other scholar-practitioners focused on business leadership. Then we’ll test drive the new methodology by offering appreciative feedback to the Business Leadership member community as together we work to refine its offerings to better equip and inspire its members.

Join us for a fast and fun event, meet other likeminded leaders, and learn a useful tool that will help you develop great leaders and drive performance with feedback that gets heard.
