Everyone knows it can be difficult for managers and employees to give and receive constructive feedback or upward feedback. Framing feedback so it comes across as helpful and not as a personal attack requires some finesse. Listening and not getting defensive when receiving constructive feedback is equally difficult. But did you know there are also ways for managers and employees to give and receive positive feedback more effectively?
It may sound like a no-brainer, but it’s true. There are strategies to make sure managers are reinforcing good behaviour when giving positive feedback. It’s also important to be able to receive positive feedback well: some people think they’re being humble by downplaying their success, but others may see it as a lack of confidence.

When managers regularly give feedback to employees, they show they’re invested in employees’ future and committed to building a strong relationship with them. And when people feel valued for what they do, they’re inspired to do their best work.
