The Problem With Sandwich Feedback Video (and what to do instead)

The sandwich method of giving feedback has long been taught as a coaching and feedback technique.

What is the Sandwich Feedback Technique?

You start by telling them something great about their performance. Then you give them the constructive feedback you really want them to hear. And you follow it up with some more positive feedback.

Why the sandwich technique doesn’t work

Sandwich feedback is the easiest way to ensure your message is lost. Either the person only hears the good things you are saying, or they only focus on the constructive. Or, they leave the performance conversation remarkably confused.

At Let’s Grow Leaders, we are BIG believers of giving people all the feedback they need, both positive recognition and constructive feedback so they continue to grow —but not in the same sentence.

In today’s episode of Asking for a Friend,  we talk about the challenges with this common coaching technique (and what to do instead).
