I have a fabulous direct and today one of his peers sent me a 1:1 email praising his work. She mentioned she's already given this feedback to him directly. Everyone is following the model!
This is how I'd typically handle the response: I reply to her with both my direct and my manager on CC...providing her with positive feedback regarding her acknowledgment, and echoing her praise to my direct.
Then I'll bring it up again to my direct during our 1:1 tomorrow.
Would you all handle it differently?
