Rejection. Maybe the word reminds you of getting dumped by your first girlfriend, or being picked last for dodgeball in the school yard. Maybe it reminds you of the job you didn’t get, or the pitch that got shot down.

Receiving feedback in the workplace can be difficult, especially if it is negative in nature. However, giving feedback — both good and bad — can be hard as well. It’s something many managers struggle with, even when they know a lack of feedback can lead to major dysfunction on a team.
In this issue of the Pulse, we share some easy ways to provide feedback for optimal employee engagement and growth.
