PhD and Postdoc Breakfast Club (zoom edition): Giving and receiving feedback
Have you ever been hesitant to criticize somebody's work because you were afraid the wrong tone could hurt their feelings? Or felt like you just couldn't efficiently formulate what you "actually" wanted to say to really help someone thrive? Or have you been put off by feedback you received, which negatively impacted your motivation and well-being? In this week's PPBC, Koyote Millar will present available strategies to make life easier.
Giving and receiving feedback is arguably one of the most important skills to have in academic environments and beyond. It happens everywhere and all the time and is not limited to our professional lives. Feedback can make crucial differences when it comes to forming relationships with people or contributing to the success of projects. Time to reflect on it more seriously! Join us with a cup of coffee and your favorite early morning outfit (no feedback here, we promise!). As usual these days, pandemic-compliant in front of your home office screen!
