Identify the best place and time to discuss the matter with your colleague. Are you planning to give feedback to a direct report, your manager, or a peer in your department? How serious is the matter? This will help you decide if it’s better to have the conversation in a conference room or over lunch. Wherever you decide to talk, make sure it’s private so you can have a candid conversation without worrying about others overhearing you.

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.

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.
