Constructive feedback is not always happily accepted, particularly among those who are on the receiving end of the criticism. Interestingly, there are also individuals who don’t care much about giving constructive feedback. There are many reasons as to why constructive feedback is negatively received by managers and employees alike.
However, what if the benefits outweigh the negatives? After all, a company is as good as its employees, so why not train, shape and guide employees to earn a good reputation?
When used correctly, constructive feedback can play a major role in improving an individual’s performance, help in building confidence and ultimately play an instrumental role in personal growth.
To be a successful manager and leader, it is necessary to have a certain set of skills, including the ability to let a team know where and how they can improve. Therefore, it is essential to fully understand the impact that constructive feedback can have and learn how to give criticism in such a way that brings about positive change.
