Giving continuous feedback is a simple yet effective way to improve individual as well as team performance by promoting a growth mindset and delivering the base to spur individual development. Thus, it should be deeply incorporated into every company culture so that not only managers but also employees reflect on their own actions as well as those of their coworkers. Managers should keep in mind what every employee is working on at the moment and how these employees performed on similar tasks in the past, then draw a comparison how their performance changed over time.
It is important to give feedback in both cases when something was done very good as well as when it could have been done much better. The emotional setting in both cases should be objective and solely concentrated on the task itself. Feedback can be given by asking employees for their own opinion on their performance, what they see they have done well and where they see room for improvement. Feedback should always be a conversation rather than a monologue. The overall goal of giving feedback is to increase employee motivation, to establish a closer relationship and to provide an objective way of how to personally improve for the future.
