The Science of Delivering Effective Feedback

Feedback is a powerful interaction that can change the course of someone’s life.

Almost all guidance on delivering feedback focuses on “negative feedback”. Negative feedback merits significant attention because it’s hard for many people to deliver and receive. The pillars of Best-Self Management can inform safer, more effective conversations involving “negative feedback”. However – and perhaps more importantly – to help someone become his or her best self, conversations involving recognition and encouragement should receive the same level of attention and forethought.
