Management

What’s the best way to give effective feedback to colleagues?

One of the most critical elements of a human resource system is the evaluation system for employees. There are many different formats for such a system, but the heart of each is offering feedback on performance.

Effective feedback names the specific situation in which the behavior was observed; names the observable actions or words; and describes the impact that behavior had on the observer.  In addition, effective feedback anchors the feedback in time and place and helps the person receiving the feedback understand the impact.
