36. Feedback takes two
When you feel you must give someone constructive feedback (and this will happen whether you manage others or not) remember to ask the person his or her opinion on the situation first.
The next step is to point out where you both have similar positions on the subject.
Only then give one or two suggestions that were not pointed out by the person (if there are any).

And, remember to balance your constructive feedback with some positive feedback as well.
