9 Tips for Effective Feedback
(from our friend Neil Hunter on LinkedIn)
1. Avoid giving unsolicited advice... ask if, when, and how they’d like to receive it. 2. Be specific. 3. Come with a deep level of empathy. 4. Don't wait for a quarterly review. 5. Keep it private. 6. Focus on outcomes not inputs. 7. Make the conversation a two-way street, seek your own growth too. 8. Focus on performance, not personality. 9. Keep the conversation going by following up as agreed.
