Many people miss the mark on conveying constructive criticism to people, mostly trying to relay what they need to work on.
This technique is called the sandwich technique (yea) and it’s a great technique because not only does it make it easier for you to convey the negatives, but you will make them feel better by overwhelming them with positives, which leads them to get more motivated while at the same time fixing the problem you’ve assessed.
I learned this technique on my own, then started doing some research about it. The technique for me works. I peer tutored young teenagers, and it works on talking to kids who you have never spoken with yet, as it’s a great introduction to start with, and it makes them more comfortable with you, while still being direct.
