I can clearly relate to what you have said here Duncan. Prior to becoming my own boss I was a PA for a large organisation where annual appraisals were mandatory. Each year I would listen to where I had been pro-active and where I hadn’t. Had this feed back been given at the relevant time it would have been far more beneficial not only to me to move forward but to the regional team I worked with. It’s interesting how in “business” we wait until an allotted time to give feedback, but in our daily lives we will give it freely, no constraints – why is that I wonder?

Appreciate your comment Lesley-Anne.

Maybe it is one of those odd behaviours that big orgnaisations sometimes bring out where people become more concerned with process than results and impact on the person geting the feedback.

‘Don’t store the feedback’. Its common sense, but it simply never occurred to me. I’ve got someone who deserves some kudos and I was going to wait until our next meeting to tell her, but I think I’ll do so now. I’m sure she would appreciate hearing it now instead of waiting.

Great to see you taking action. Sometimes the obvious tips are so obvious we foreget.

I am sure the other person will value the positive feedback.
