This Week’s HRI “Lightbulb”  – Negative Feedback

I think all of us have found that most people aren’t used to receiving negative feedback about their job performance.  Therefore, it shouldn’t be a surprise when it comes as a surprise to your employees.  Do yourself a favor.  First ask their permission to give them honest feedback.  It helps reduce or eliminate the element of surprise.  And, finish off your feedback with a truthful note of optimism.
