When Giving Critique

When you provide feedback always start with something positive. Tell the other person what they did well. A self depreciating comment about your own shortcomings in a similar situation also work wonders. Now they are ready to listen to the critique. I like to think of this as a hamburger; first you give them a bun, then the meat and finally another bun on top. End with a positive encouraging note to instill confidence in the other persons ability. "Come on, I know you can do it!"
