One of my team members is failing to solicit critical feedback -- and it's robbing them of the opportunity to improve. I've been a manager for over 10+ years and while I know this could be my own communication style, this particular person is pretty hard to evaluate and coach.
I know that when employees lack self-confidence, it can be hard to perform their best. And I really would love for this person to strive to excel in their job in a meaningful way, while boosting their self-esteem and not making them feel like they're being pressured.
Any management tips on boosting a direct reports self-esteem? Any and all examples that did/didn't work for you would be great! Thank you!
