"The course was partly relevant to my current, however, it is quite interesting to learn how to deliver constructive criticism in the workplace as well as applying it in my personal life. The trainer has made the topic very interesting as she was a hilarious and approachable person. Overall, it was really well presented and organized course."

Constructive Criticism must be provided correctly to maximise its impact and benefits. During this training course in delivering constructive criticism, participants receive training in choosing the right place, time and occasion for giving criticism, setting goals, preparing and planning a healthy criticism, and understanding the role of emotions and reactions in delivering constructive criticism.
Effective criticism helps in the management of human resources. It reduces problematic behaviours and conflicts that negatively impact an organisation. When an employee requires feedback or criticism it needs to be handled appropriately and skillfully.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
