This type of feedback is specific, issue-focused and based on observations. There are
four types of constructive feedback:
- Negative feedback – corrective comments about past behaviour. Focuses on behaviour that
wasn’t successful and shouldn’t be repeated.
- Positive feedback – affirming comments about past behaviour. Focuses on behaviour that
was successful and should be continued.
- Negative feed-forward – corrective comments about future performance. Focuses on
behaviour that should be avoided in the future.
- Positive feed-forward – affirming comments about future behaviour. Focused on behaviour
that will improve performance in the future.
