Pitfalls in Giving Constructive Feedback

Check the attitudes that you think carry into a situation where you need to provide others with feedback:

If I wait long enough, the situation will probably resolve itself so I don’t have to get involved.

Since I don’t like to receive critical feedback I can’t imagine anyone else would. Therefore, I choose to ignore the problem.

I give critical feedback indirectly by using sarcasm or jokes.

There never seems to be a “right” time to provide critical feedback, and I keep putting it off.

It takes so much time to provide critical feedback effectively, I’d rather pick up the slack than take the time to correct another’s behavior.

I’m unsure of how the other person is going to respond to my critical feedback; therefore, I avoid giving it at all.

I’m not perfect, so who am I to judge anyone else’s behavior?

If I give my boss negative feedback, it may be used against me at my next performance evaluation session.

I’ve let the situation go on for too long now, and I’m so angry that I’m sure I’m going to blow up and mishandle the situation.
