Before you provide feedback or suggestions, ask your colleague for permission. This can be as simple as “Can I check something out with you?” or “Can I share some observations I’ve made?” When your colleague has given her consent, she is much more likely to approach your suggestions with an open mind.

Constructive feedback is one of the greatest gifts managers can provide to employees. When delivered properly, the right feedback can reinforce positive behavior and correct any negative performances.

Many managers are reluctant to provide negative feedback, however. Don't fall into this trap! Use these six tips, identified by Amanda Augustine, job search expert for TheLadders, to give feedback that will help your employees develop and improve your team's overall performance. 

When properly implemented, feedback can be a powerful tool in the workplace. Apply these tips the next time you need to provide negative feedback to a colleague, and they just might thank you.
