Constructive Feedback

What is constructive feedback?

Constructive feedback looks to achieve a positive outcome by providing useful observations, guidance, or suggestions for the recipient's work or future. The result may be speedier procedures, improved behaviors, the identification of vulnerabilities, or fresh insights.

What are examples of constructive feedback?

Example of positive comments: 

"Jenny, I have always admired your productivity and dependability. However, I have recently noticed a change in your performance. Turning in projects late is unlike you. I wanted to check in with you to see if you are okay and whether there are any obstacles you've encountered and why. Also, I would like to see how I can support you better. 

What are the 4 key features of constructive feedback?

We distinguish four fundamental types of constructive feedback in the workplace: positive feedback, negative feedback, motivating feedback, and corrective feedback.
