Feedback Categories

Researcher Carl Roger suggests that leaders provide feedback as they interact with their subordinates.  Roger identified five main categories of feedback as they appear in everyday conversation:

  • Evaluative: Making a judgment about the value or appropriateness of a subordinate’s statement.

  • Interpretive: Restating what a subordinate means.

  • Supportive: Encouraging or bolstering a subordinate’s communication.

  • Probing: Attempting to gain additional information, continue the discussion, or clarify a point.

  • Understanding: Attempting to discover completely what the subordinate means.

Provide recent examples of how you have used these these feedback categories:
