You have probably heard about the feedback sandwich. Well, it’s working. However, to use it correctly, we need to give attention to details and show our willingness to help.
Say something positive.
For example, “Congrats for your first try!” It’s good to tell two or three things that they did well.
Say what the person can improve.
Don’t say what was wrong, but rather focus on positive changes and growth.
End with a positive emotion.
You can say something like, “Well, as I said, generally, you did great!"
