Giving Your Teammates Effective Feedback
Sharing a constructive comment can feel a little tricky, especially when you're not used to giving feedback. Following these tips will help you provide feedback in a way that benefits everyone.
Feedback is most helpful when it's relevant, so don't wait weeks to let your teammate know about a concern. However, if you're addressing a situation that has made you upset, be sure you give yourself some time to cool off so you can approach the issue in a level-headed way.
