Still Beating a Dead Horse: More on feedback in light of the Mercenary Audio firing

I'm still beating the horse because I'm pretty sure it's not really dead yet.

Yesterday, I wrote about performance evaluations. I wanted to pass along a great resource from the Center for Creative Leadership: their Ten Common Mistakes in Giving Feedback. This three-page paper provides good down-to-earth suggestions on providing performance feedback.

The reason most of us don't do a good job at providing feedback is that we don't know how it should be done and we don't practice good skills. Even the good folks at Mercenary Audio ought to be able to learn a thing or two so they don't find themselves being torn apart in the blogosphere again... well, unless they are truly bumbling idiots or just plain evil...
