Give Constructive Feedback

Provided by the International Finance Corporation

Many business owners find it difficult to provide feedback to an employee who isn’t performing quite as well as expected. It is frequently difficult to stay focused on providing constructive criticism that, hopefully, will lead the employee to improve. There might be a temptation to avoid putting yourself in a potentially confrontational situation. But face it, a poor employee isn’t going to get better unless he or she is made aware that there is a need to improve. By concentrating on the desired results rather than the employee’s perceived shortcomings, you can improve the chances of a positive outcome.

This tool provides some tips on how to provide a constructive feedback to improve your human resources management as well as the motivation and performance of your employees. You may adapt it to your business needs and employment conditions.
