Compliment

“Bob I really like the way you handled the audit and was amazed at how well we did this year, under your leadership.”

Suggest change in behavior

“Bob, I’ve been thinking. One thing I’d like us to work on together is our sandwich technique. I have forwarded you an email that gives a simple review of the sandwich technique. Please read it and let’s remind each other to use it. I think its a good idea.”

Compliment

“By the way Bob, I saw your team had a great result on Project ABC. I hope you know how much I appreciate all of your hard work leading our team.”

A simple but powerful technique.

Thanks for reading.
