Live Webinar Part 2 – Research to Practice: ABP Student Award Winners’ Showcase
30 September 2019 at 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm
The session will kick off with a presentation by student award winner Rachel Foord on the topic of performance appraisals, specifically work-related feedback. This will follow with a brief review by Eric Barends, Managing Director of CEBMa, before sharing his expertise and offering some key insights in the application of evidence-based management.
FEEDBACK AS A GIFT: An Exploration of the Psychological Impact of Work-Related Feedback Experiences.
Rachel will provide a summary of her research which explored the psychological impact of receiving feedback at work and its relevance for developing effective feedback practices in organisational settings. She will present a qualitative study uncovering lived experiences of people receiving feedback at work across a variety of occupations, explained through a thematic framework proposing four distinct but interrelated psychological processes: feedback cognitions, feedback emotions and feelings, post-feedback strategies and post-feedback outcomes. She will also provide her insights into the critical role of the feedback giver in influencing psychological impact and recommendations for maximising their effectiveness using an evidence-based model.
