Show Notes

Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who want to land dream opportunities in their careers and get that recognition they so deserve.

Feedback is crucial to empower other people and it should be embraced and yet a lot of people recoil at the idea of giving other people feedback.

Are any of these your concerns?

  • "What if I say the wrong thing and upset them?"
  • "How can I give negative feedback constructively?"
  • "How can I help my direct report grow and build trust whilst giving feedback?"

In this episode, 'How to Give Constructive Feedback'  I am sharing lots of practical tips to make giving feedback a breeze.

And I do believe feedback should be a consistent thing. Don't wait until an annual review to give feedback... be thinking how you can give feedback regularly (and asking for it too)! ;)  

Let's talk about:

  • How a leader should prepare for your review session with a direct report 
  • How to set the correct tone for your feedback discussion to ensure your direct report feels included, respected and valued
  • How to build trust and rapport each time you give feedback
  • How to make the MOST of giving positive feedback and...
  • Framing that feedback effectively when you want to highlight areas for development

Here's something interesting I said in this ep! :)

"Make sure you, as team leader, have done your homework. Know how your team member's success is being measured; know what they value; understand and be keen to support their career aspirations. Giving feedback is as much about developing your team member as it is about building trust between you."  (Rebecca Allen, Career Success Coach and host of Her Ambitious Career podcast)
