Tuning In: Refining the art of feedback

Career coach, Dina Al-Alami and learning facilitator, Renata Kovacs are partnering with SheSharp to provide you with a digital learning and coaching programme focused on the essential skills of asking, giving, and receiving feedback. Dina is a trained career coach who helps tech professionals build impactful careers on a balanced, healthy growth trajectory. Renata is an enthusiastic learning facilitator of hands-on, interactive workshops focused on practical skills that can help us feel better and thrive in our professional and personal lives.

What is the Tuning In workshops series?

Giving and receiving feedback with empathy strengthens relationships, creates growth, and fosters self-awareness. An essential yet misunderstood skill can be the difference between feeling motivated and energised and feeling underappreciated and disempowered in our work.

But it takes two to feedback -  how can you prepare to make the most of your next feedback session with your manager or colleague? Tap into your hidden human capacity to show up with openness and compassion and turn feedback into a guide for growth instead of a dreaded yearly activity.

This opportunity consists of...

Join our digital learning programme (facilitated in 2x1-hour sessions per week over three weeks) to uncover and practise the art of giving, asking, and receiving feedback. It will contain: 

  • Interactive exercises to practise feedback tactics and approaches

  • Real-life case studies you can relate to

  • A supportive environment where vulnerability is encouraged

  • Open dialogues around challenges in embracing feedback

  • Group coaching to help you reflect and debrief

  • Practical role-plays to reflect on what it’s like to be in the shoes of others

Programme schedule
