Online classroom: Giving Constructive Feedback

In a professional context feedback is inevitable. Performance and delivering results is usually at the forefront: the fear of making mistakes is great. In this setting feedback could be experienced as unpleasant or as a form of criticism, while it should actually stimulate growth through constructive and positive input. That is why it is essential that we learn to provide feedback in a good way and to receive it in a relaxed manner.
