Good, constructive feedback enables us to learn as we work and to learn from mistakes and success. It means to actually improve; in other words to provide feed forward to excel.
Feedforward can be positive – as praise and recognition – or negative, both are important. Clear and specific positive feed forward is one of the easiest and inexpensive motivating forces in existence.
