Eric Harvey and Al Lucia wrote a booklet called, 144 Ways To Walk The Talk. They provide the following great advice about giving feedback:

1. Make it timely – give your feedback as soon as possible to the performance.

2. Make it individualized – tailor your feedback to the feedback receiver.

3. Make it productive – focus your feedback on the performance and not the performer.

4. Make is specific — pinpoint for the receiver observable actions and behaviors.
