How To Give Feedback

We know receiving feedback is often uncomfortable, and because of this, giving feedback becomes uncomfortable too.Β 

There are many methods to make giving and receiving feedback suck less: The β€œπŸ’© Sandwich Approach,” the β€œT.A.G. Feedback” … 

Let me throw one more out there:

𝗧𝗡𝗲 𝗖.𝗒.π—œ.𝗑. π— π—²π˜π—΅π—Όπ—±
C -> Context: I want to discuss an interaction between you and John in our last weekly meeting. John was presenting his plan and you made comments to his plan.
O -> Observation: I saw that when he was answering your question about the types of lemons, you cut him off 3 times and said β€œno no no.”
I -> Impact: He appeared nervous, and the rest of the room felt nervous too.
N -> Next: Let’s agree how we can probe respectfully and productively.

I like this method because I can put a coin in front of me to remind myself how to be less of a jerk. 

An alternative is to use a shxt sandwich, but it is messy to prepare.
