Delivering constructive criticism to employees in a way they can hear it and use it to succeed can be difficult but not impossible.
The key is to reframe your feedback as follows:
Focus first on specific positives.
(“The way you ______and ______ is perfect because _____________________.”)
Then, start your next sentence with:
“What would make it even better is if you were to __________. How about you give it a try, see what you think and let me know?”
