This time we will focus on feedback, both positive and negative, and how to give and receive it in a way that will produce positive results for both parties. Plus we'll do another "bring your own" challenge!

The great folks over at Makers Academy are sharing their space with us for this event!

    Thanks for organizing this last night Lynn. Some of the scenarios were slightly awkward at first but thought provoking. There were definitely some concrete take aways for me. Hope to be able to attend next month!

    Great evening - after getting past the initial discomfort of doing the actual communicating - the dojo format was a first for me, after some initial difficult I found it worked really well.

    Thanks Lynn and all - hopefully see you next month.

    An interesting group and some real commitment to improvement and sharing. The exercises definitely moved me out of my comfort zone, and feedback has helped me be more midful of my own verbal and non-verbal communication patterns.

    Thanks to all who came! Apologies for the rush to finish at the end, I'll try to manage time better next time. The article on ideal feedback ratios is here:

    I repeat my challenge to everyone to reach the ratio of 11 to 1!
