Compliments + Constructive Criticism = Clarity, Confidence and Contentment.
Praise and constructive criticism are primary tools for genuine leaders. So much so that we could end up taking them for granted. They shouldn't be.
Praise shows our appreciation, while constructive criticism shows that we care enough to offer open and honest feedback.
How powerful it is to be told how well we performed, or that we need to make a correction, when this comes from a leader we respect.
Be a better boss and keep the “C” equation in mind; be hearty with your praise, and compassionate with your constructive criticism!
