The Power of Feedback: Supporting Success in Your Workforce

The people in your organisation are your most powerful asset, but is your team able to reach their full potential? Are individuals telling each other what they need to hear, or are they avoiding difficult conversations? Do they feel truly supported in their roles?

In this podcast, OneAdvanced Chief People Officer Katie Obi discusses how to unlock high performance by facilitating top level feedback. She draws on the learnings of her career, which has seen her hold the roles of Chief People Officer at tech start-up Beamery, and Chief People and Transformation Officer at leading SAP consulting firm, Rizing. She covers what a strong culture of honest, transparent communication looks like, why it is vital to help your employees thrive, and how Performance and Talent software can help.

Advanced Chief People Officer
I love helping companies solve complex business challenges and transform their people agendas through leveraging technology. With over 20 years of experience in Human Capital Management as a trusted partner and advisor, I have learned experience in transforming organisations through a number of hands-on roles, including as an HR technology consultant, business leader, change leader, transformation executive, CHRO practitioner, and client executive partner. I have worked closely with Board members, executive teams, private equity firms, CHROs and HR teams to drive global corporate turanourds, transformation programs, and HR technology implementations to yield commercial business results. I'm passionate about evidence-led management and HR practices, innovations in technology (including AI and automation) and the power of data science.
