Giving feedback to your manager doesn’t have to be scary. Especially when you realize the benefits. Think of a time you had a piece of feedback you wanted to tell your manager. What did you do? Do you bite your tongue and wait until they ask you about it? Did you worry it wasn’t your place to critique your supervisor?
If you would’ve asked someone what to do just ten years ago, they would’ve likely told you to sit tight and hold back. The mere idea of providing suggestions or constructive criticism to someone higher than you on the org chart wasn’t just uncommon — it was taboo.
But today manager feedback, also known as upward feedback, has been growing in popularity, and for good reason.
