Feedback can be a powerful opportunity for growth in your company, but if done insufficiently it can be detrimental to progress. Leaders dread giving feedback, but your employees are actually craving it.
If you fear giving feedback, it will show. You shouldn’t be afraid to hurt your employee’s feelings. If your feedback is useful, constructive and well-thought out, they’ll understand where you’re coming from and take it to heart.
Don’t do it halfway. This feedback is important to both your employee and your company. You want to make sure it will have a positive impact.
