Giving timely positive feedback

Effective positive feedback is prompt, specific and communicated clearly. Generic 'well done' type comments go unnoticed; praise given in response to particular behaviour reinforces performance you want to encourage.

Summary of learning messages

  • Praise positively reinforces desired behaviour
    Effective praise is motivational and helps people take pride in their work

  • Be specific with your praise
    Be precise about the behaviour you wish to reinforce, reward and encourage

  • Give prompt, timely praise
    Praise needs to be ‘in the moment’ - the opportunity is lost if you leave it too late.
