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)
