In addition to being able to receive feedback, giving honest feedback is also essential. Employees need and want to hear how they’re doing, and likely have no idea where their performance ranks with higher ups without some form of feedback. Without sharing your experience of working with an employee and sharing your expert insight, the employee does not have the chance to improve and experience greater levels of success. When offering feedback, it’s important to be honest, kind, and encouraging. This is important not only when an employee’s performance is suffering, but also when he’s been playing his best game-without room to grow, he will become stifled and bored. When offering any type of employee feedback, is it always important to offer opportunities and invitations for growth-whether these opportunities involve deepening skills, creating new contacts, being promoted, the possibility of a raise or bonus, or some other form of rewarding, exciting outcome so that the employee knows that you are invested in him just as much as he is invested in his work and the company.
