In 15Five In Slack

When one of your coworkers requests feedback from you, you will receive an in-app notification and an email notification (if you haven't disabled the "when I receive a feedback request" email in your notification preferences). If you follow the link in the notification, you will skip ahead to step #3 below.

  1. Click on Feedback in 15Five's main, left-hand navigation.
  2. Find the feedback request in the "Pending requests" section, located on the right-hand side of the page. Click on the requester's name to open the feedback form.
  3. Use the feedback form to provide feedback to your teammate about the topic noted in the request. If you're looking for inspiration, consider these tips:
    • Separate positive and constructive feedback. Surrounding constructive feedback with positive feedback may feel better for the giver, but is confusing for the receiver.
    • Use this one sentence to make feedback 40% more effective: “I am giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know you can reach them.”
    • For feedback to be effective, keep it about the work— not the person. First, describe the situation, then name your feeling (“I feel...”), then make your request (“I need...”).
  4. Once you have written your feedback and are ready to share it with the requestor, click the Send feedback button.
  5. The feedback you gave will continue to appear in your own feed (as well as the requestor's feed) on the main 'Feedback' page.Screen_Shot_2021-04-16_at_1.47.05_PM.png
