I use to be a cabinet maker apprentice, good gig, but a bit to much saw dust.
One thing that the trades I worked with and for is they sucked at feedback, positive or negative.
Want to know how to give good feedback, find out a persons success orientation filter and give them feedback that way and you will have a happy work force.
People will do one of the following; they will do an internal check of how they are going; they will do a external check by asking some one; do a internal check followed by a external check; a external check with a internal check.
Ask your self the following, “how do you know when you’re doing/have done a good job? What or who lets you know?”
Internal = where you know you have done a good job by how you feel, what you say to your self.
External = you know you have done a good job based of the feedback from others.
Internal with external check = you feel good/bad about the outcome of your work and you confirm that by asking people.
External with internal check = after asking other about your performance you measure that to how you feel you went.

PS. What’s the one thing you don’t do, that would cause the most positive change in your life?
