How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

When you’re a leader, giving feedback, both positive and negative, comes with the territory. But not everyone is comfortable giving it. Sarah Green, a senior associate editor with the Harvard Business Review, recently scoured HBR’s blog for the site’s best advice for how to give negative feedback. Here are her five tips:


1. Be direct by avoiding the feedback “sandwich.”


Instead of couching criticism with positive feedback (which can dilute the message and sounds insincere), approaching the issue directly and with transparency allows everyone to understand the purpose of the discussion and keep the conversation on track. For example, if a colleague’s presentation style needs improvement, you can approach the conversation by asking if you can provide some feedback. They’ll (most likely) say yes, and will be more open to accepting it.

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Even with the best intentions, feedback can easily backfire. The praise you give doesn’t lead to greater confidence. Your expert advice seems to take the wind right out of his sails. You decide to “go easy” on her, only to find her growing more anxious by the minute. And you are far from alone if you’ve had a hard time figuring out why.


Fortunately, scientific studies of motivation have identified clear, principled reasons why some types of feedback work, and others don’t. It is neither mysterious nor random. If you’ve gotten it wrong in the past (and who hasn’t?), then you can do a better job giving feedback from now on by sticking to a few simple rules.

The same advice we give teachers about feedback to their students and developing a growth mindset applies to our feedback for staff.

Providing feedback to students could help them realise their strengths and faults. All praise and no constructive feedback might backfire on the learning progress of the students as they do not know what exactly went well or otherwise.
