Give it wherever you are when the opportunity arises. The value is in the proximity to the event and the spontaneity of your delivery.
Praise in public. However, if it contains a critical element, you may want to take the person aside to a more private space. If you are going to swap into a more formal conversation, be very clear about that.
Otherwise, be casual
And here’s something important: Never vent your anger under a pretence of “providing feedback.” When your emotions are running high, it is best to give yourself time to cool down before meeting with a colleague to ensure a productive feedback session and avoid the risk of saying something (or saying it in a way) that you will later regret.
The space needs to feel safe for both of you to have a serious conversation… maybe even a difficult, complicated conversation.
– Confidentiality – somewhere private
– Convenience (but maybe away from normal place of work)
The time needs to be appropriate
– if feedback is based on a specific event, then as soon as possible (but not sooner
– Otherwise, at the right time based on whatever cycle you are working to (formal or informal)
