Giving better feedback

Updated: Sep 8

Giving constructive feedback is rarely comfortable or easy for anyone involved.

Recognising that it is an important vital part of your role as a leader as it helps your people grow will, for many, be a huge step forward to making the process easier and more valuable.

Other suggestions to improve the way you give feedback:

  • make sure the person knows the constructive feedback you are providing is not a reflection of them as a person but an observation of them in a business context

  • accept it's ok for people to disagree as everyone is entitled to have different opinions or there could be situations where we don't have all the facts

  • seek to gain understanding rather than agreement (e.g. in a performance review session)
