Three Instant Way to Give Positive Feedback to Others


Any leaders looking for a way to avoid being a stingy Grinch this Christmas season? Here’s a very simple but not always easy way to freely give with a generous heart AND get results with your team. Honorable leaders must give positive feedback on a regular basis. Here are 3 reasons why:

  1. Positive feedback meets several deep human needs.
  2. When you compliment someone’s talents, contributions, and future potential, you’re contradicting some of the lies and negative beliefs that they have about themselves.
  3. There’s a multiplication effect that comes from genuine positive affirmation.

And here are three ways to do it immediately:

  1. Make it specific. Use a recent example of a successful contribution or some way in which the person has impacted you or the team.
  2. Make it genuine—short is fine. You don’t have to make a big deal about it—though in some situations that may be called for.
  3. Make sure you have positive energy and enthusiasm.
