Giving feedback is a vital skill for leaders and often one of their biggest challenges. Have you ever thought - "I should say something but there never seems to be the right time" or "If I wait long enough, it will sort itself out." In reality - when we are disappointed or frustrated with the performance of a staff member and we don't give them feedback, we are rewarding poor performance.

"Feedback is the breakfast of champions"- Rich Tate
