BEST MANAGERS MEET AT ALCHEMIA FOR THE THIRD TIME

Published

On 22 March, the third meeting in the BEST MANAGERS workshop series was held in Alchemia’s ARGON building. The workshop, designed to help managers improve key job competencies, attracted 17 people representing a wide variety of businesses and company positions. The main theme of the meeting was feedback – how to harness criticism in five steps to improve one’s strengths.

As usual, the meeting began with a chat with the special guest, who introduced the participants to the broad subject of feedback. The talk was given by visionary creative artist and team leader Oskar Podolski (247@Studio), for whom giving and receiving feedback is an everyday reality. Podolski has authored several projects concerning visual branding and self-image, for which he constantly receives client feedback. After the speech came the main part of the workshop, where the participants explored practical tips to giving feedback.
Different approaches were explored, including how to give corrective feedback designed to obtain a desired response from the receiver, as well as positive feedback designed to acknowledge the receiver’s work. Thankfully, there are some templates allowing managers to better understand and navigate through the subject. In addition to practice and behaviour reinforcement, a good grasp of feedback allows one to increase their team’s working efficiency and help strengthen interpersonal relations. Another important area was the importance of celebrating success, which is also a form of feedback.
Feedback is gaining traction with the current social and cultural changes in the job market and among younger employees. Without it, or without doing it properly and often enough, employees can find it hard to maintain efficiency working in organisations. The workshop concluded with lunch and networking. Once again, the event was created and hosted by Monika Reszko, with TORUS serving as main event partner.
So far, BEST MANAGERS tackled the subjects of COMMUNICATION, DELEGATION and FEEDBACK. The final meeting will concern TIME – five ways to stop chasing work and start enjoying things.
