Jessica Hall To Speak At Ela Conf on the 5 Stages of Accepting Negative Feedback

3Pillar’s Jessica Hall will be speaking at the upcoming Ela Conf in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 4. Ela Conf is a a conference dedicated to empowering more women to be leaders in the tech industry.

Jessica’s talk, titled “5 Stages of Accepting Negative Feedback,” will cover the cycle of emotions one can expect to experience when receiving negative feedback. The 5 stages Jessica outlines are:

  1. Denial
  2. Anger
  3. Consideration
  4. Panic
  5. Excitement

Jessica will go through each of these stages in sequence and explain why they are indeed completely normal feelings to have when getting feedback from customers, stakeholders, research respondents, and anyone else who may be weighing in on work or ideas you put in front of them.

Ela Conf is a conference with the goal to create a safe, supportive, inspiring and comfortable community for adult women to gain the confidence needed to become leaders, speakers, and teachers in the world of tech. Their firm belief is that when women become leaders, the entire tech community benefits. All profits from this event will be donated to Girl Develop It – a nonprofit organization that provides affordable and judgment-free opportunities for women interested in learning web and software development.
