In a team development workshop I learned: Feedback is a labor of love. That may sound over the top but it’s not. Giving feedback is an act of kindness to yourself and to others.

The most important thing about giving feedback is your attitude: open-mindedness, appreciation for others and how you give feedback. Feedback is not just saying “That’s great!” or “I don’t like that.” Giving real feedback means sharing careful observations as well as pointing out effects, consequences and perhaps a suggestion or two.
