Katharina delivered lots of information in regard to leadership and management skills. I learned a lot from the training videos, well prepared workbooks and extended materials. Really appreciated the efforts Katharina took.
The coaching helped me to become aware of key team leadership principles, to adapt them to my team, and to integrate them into a process that I now use successfully in my daily work.
The way Katharina imparts knowledge is great. Especially the impulses around feedback conversations, misconceptions around delegation, the helpful checklists and structured processes for giving feedback and delegating.
Starting off with a 1.5-hour live session on why feedback should be a part of daily team culture and how to use negative as well as positive feedback to strengthen the potentials in each employee.
In the session we will uplevel from a soggy feedback-sandwich to a fresh and crispy feedback wrap. Based on principles from non-violent communication, the feedback wrap helps you to not only get your point across but to make the feedback receiver want to solve the issue. We will especially focus on what to be aware of when giving feedback in a remote setting in which personal contact is limited and the after-work event to “talk it all out” is missing.
The learning doesn’t stop at the end of the session. In fact that’s when it really begins. Coming out of the session with the task to use the new technique in both negative and positive feedbacks, you will be teamed up with another course participant to exchange experiences and check in on how it's going. Together with your learning buddy, you will prepare a collection of the challenges and questions you are facing which we will use as the base for an additional 1-hour “hot seat” coaching call.
In between sessions you will also have the opportunity to engage in an exclusive chat channel with other participants and the coach for any questions you may have.
