#10: Giving Feedback
One of the key skills of managing effectively is to give timely and honest feedback.
Given in a coaching style this can be a powerful tool for you to develop.
Feedback allows others to become aware of their “hidden window” (e.g. the things that others see but the individual is unaware of).
Increasing an individual’s awareness of their behaviours then allows them to make choices about how they want to behave differently
It is important to remember that others’ perceptions of you are, whether true or not, are their reality. Understanding their reality gives choice.
