Leadership Tip: Giving Feedback
There are two purposes for providing feedback: to either change behavior or maintain it. There are no other reasons.
Give feedback when
- The person asked for your opinion.
- You asked for and were given permission to give input, and you have a specific example to share.
- The incident happened recently, preferably within a week.
- You are trying to help the person improve his or her performance or want to be sure he or she keeps doing something that is working.
