In November 2014, Paul Jensen and Tim Knights facilitated an informative, interactive workshop held at the Modderfontein Toastmasters Club.
During the theory sessions, Tim focused on the “why” of giving effective feedback and emphasized that every evaluation should benefit the speaker, encourage continuing speaking and build and maintain self-esteem. Paul expedited the group practical session, focusing on the “how” and allowed participants to apply the theory. Evaluations were assessed and participants were advised of areas of improvements.
If you want to improve your speaking and leadership skills, you must learn how to give and receive helpful evaluations. The more effective we are in evaluating each other, the more each of us profit from the experience.
It is highly recommended that every aspiring leader attend the next workshop!
