Feedback is a gift at least that is what it is meant to be. On management training courses all over the world we hear about the importance of giving feedback to staff members and indeed with the advent of 360 degree feedback, we now also hear of the importance of receiving feedback. However if feedback is not delivered correctly it can not only be a poor management tool but also a dangerous management tool. There are several steps needed to offer effective feedback to staff members. Good management training courses will definitely spend some time on these steps as they are a vital part of the managers armory when dealing with staff The first thing to remember about giving feedback to staff is it must be TIMELY In other words it s no good waiting for the next staff appraisal to give feedback, generally feedback should be an ongoing part of management and training staff members and as such should be delivered as soon as possible after or during the event, you are giving feedback on.

The comments above are only a sample of key areas many management training courses cover to help managers become effective in this vital skill of managing people.
