Coach Larry’s Feedback Sandwich

Coach Larry’s Feedback Sandwich

  • Leaders like to use the feedback sandwich and give a positive piece of feedback, followed by something constructive, and close with something positive.
  • The feedback sandwich may feel good to the leader, but leaves the feedback receiver confused.
  • Alternatively, think of a feedback bank account. Positive feedback is a deposit and constructive feedback is a withdrawal.
  • However, for the feedback to feel balanced we need to make 6 deposits for every withdrawal, over time.
