Part II: How to Give Constructive Feedback > When not to Give Critical Feedback

Chapter 26. When not to Give Critical Feedback

Once you have decided on the form your criticism will take, keep in mind that there will be times when you will not want to give critical feedback:

Do not give critical feedback when you are angry, stressed, or testy.

Do not give critical feedback when the timing is bad for the recipient, or the person receiving the feedback cannot take action on it.

Do not give critical feedback when you do not have specific facts or evidence to back up your feedback.

Do not give critical feedback as a power play—to lower the self-esteem of the other or to make yourself appear important.

Do not expect to see results from your critical feedback if you have not already established mutual goals or expectations.
