How to Be a Boss: Psych 101 in Review

This all makes perfectly wonderful sense! From the HBR: “Positive feedback (e.g., Here’s what you did really well….) increases commitment to the work you do, by enhancing both your experience and your confidence. Negative feedback (e.g., Here’s where you went wrong….), on the other hand, is informative — it tells you where you need to spend your effort, and offers insight into how you might improve.”

I definitely agree. Positive feedback is nice in that it shows your good work is being recognized, but “negative” or critical feedback is almost always more helpful.

Everyone read Don’t Shoot The Dog. Behaviorism for dummies, and unsurprisingly, dog training is basically the same as people training.
