At some point, do you quit commenting on something you've already given multiple positive feedbacks on - even if it's really great?
I have a direct report that is an outstanding communicator. The detail in the her own contents, timeliness, wording in response to other's document or emails in tough situations, etc. is all better than any I've ever seen - better than me too! :lol: She's in documentation and it's critical to her job. She wants to stay doing what she's doing. I've given specific comments on things in specific situations. I've given her feedback on that it's something I see she does outstanding all of the time.
But she may respond to 3 to 4 things a week some weeks. I've been her manager for 4 months and really focused on feedback the last month. It feels funny to stop. On the other hand, does the repetition with nothing new to day seem odd to continue? I even thought about only picking one a month but that seemed arbitrary. The idea of saying nothing seems to be taking it for granted when it really is exceptional.
