“There’s no such thing as constructive feedback.”
Giving negative feedback to a valuable team member is one of the conversations managers most dread. There are risks in the three essentials dimensions of every interaction: the task (it), as the employee can lose motivation, the relationship (we), as the conversation can turn cold, and for the selves (I), as both the manager and the employee may feel stress, anger and hurt.
