Our Feedback Techniques sessions enable you to practice the conversations with our actor-facilitators, whether you are hiring, firing or negotiating. The benefit of experience-based learning is that it is tailored to suit the individual in any one moment; if your delegates are exceptionally confident, then we’ll make the challenge harder, and vice versa.
