CEI: 3 Steps to Building a Culture of Feedback & Transparency

November 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CST


Taught via Zoom | Instructor: Gregory Tall

One of your employees or coworkers just made a huge mistake that impacts your work, or they regularly do things that stifle their chances of being promoted. You feel like you should speak up, but you don’t want to hurt their feelings or damage your relationship with them. Or maybe you are just too direct and are worried that you will offend them. So instead you hope the problem miraculously goes away or you convince yourself that you’re really going to speak up the next time something happens. Really!

This workshop prepares you to be on the giving and receiving end of those very difficult, but very necessary conversations.

About the instructor:

Gregory Tall is a high-energy speaker and facilitator who helps people become better communicators and companies become better workplaces. After spending 15 years helping high-growth organizations acquire & develop diverse talent and build top workplaces, Gregory now designs and facilitates interactive learning experiences that teach participants how to communicate with employees, peers, customers, investors, and other external stakeholders in the most compelling way. Gregory’s immersive workshops include his signature high-energy delivery, interactive exercises, videos, music, gamification, mobile technology and slide decks that are pure eye candy! Gregory has delivered hundreds of presentations in settings ranging from the boardroom of a 30-person start-up company to the unexplainably chilly hotel ballroom filled with hundreds of heavily-caffeinated conference attendees. Gregory’s past clients have included global Fortune 500 companies, mission-driven not-for-profit organizations, and volunteer-led professional associations.
Gregory began his career as a tech recruiter at a start-up company, helping source, recruit and hire talent in the industrial design & engineering fields. After that, he joined a fast-growing private company helping them innovate in the areas of employer branding, talent acquisition, employee onboarding & engagement, and learning & development. During his tenure as Director of Talent Acquisition & Professional Development, the company was recognized by Energage for three consecutive years as a “Top Workplace” in Chicago.
Next, Gregory served as Director of Talent Development at a Fortune “100 Best Companies to Work For” company. In that role, he oversaw the design, development, and implementation of leadership development and learning programs for six functional teams in the Chicago region, launched an initiative that delivered over 80 annual hours of professional development per employee, and coached all employees and senior managers through the creation of career development plans.
Gregory holds an M.B.A. from the Morris Graduate School of Management and a Bachelor Degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. And, Gregory is an avid reader & walker, a public radio junkie, a shameless abuser of Post-It easel pads and someone who absolutely insists on having a chocolate chip cookie. Every. Single. Day.
