Provide context.

Why do you care if someone delivers work late? OR does not format presentations perfectly? The answers may be obvious to you, but an employee needs to understand the why behind your feedback. Try to place specific notes inside the bigger picture—for example, “When our department is late with work, it affects other teams too,” or “When your financials look misaligned, it can give people a lack of confidence in your numbers.” Explaining why your feedback is important, says Hauser, can make it easier to deliver & hear.
