In a previous post we talked about using the “EARN” approach to giving constructive feedback that focuses on a person’s actions rather than on their person or character.
Below are some other tips to help you deliver more effective feedback.
Be positive – If your intention is genuine, and you can convey this to the employee, there’s a good chance your feedback will be effective.
Be immediate – Give the feedback while the individual can act on it. Waiting until the end of the week, or worst yet, the annual performance review doesn’t help the person make mid-course corrections.
