My Thoughts

There is a difference between positive feedback and negative feedback but, there is an even bigger difference when it comes to constructive feedback. It doesn’t matter what the problems or compliments are, what initiates action is the way it is delivered. Constructive feedback can be the hardest to give. This book has clear guidelines on how to construct and give useful feedback. Many managers give feedback that just ends up confusing because they are about hurt feelings. This book gave me the confidence to speak up and take an active role when discussing my professional development.

Good Luck to All Entries!

    My friend and I are in the process of developing publishing agencies, this book could very well mean the difference between success and failure in our fields of interest.

    I currently have 3 people that report to me. My biggest struggle is providing feedback to them that motivates vs. demoralizes. Encourages collaboration. Encourages positive responses. I work with my team remotely, but they are in the same office. I love that this book focuses on those key issues.
