How to give valuable and constructive feedback
"Would you please stop turning your car around in my driveway?" or "I'd really appreciate it if you could be less noisy in our office." These are just a couple of examples of expressing your opinion. But expressing your opinion, or giving feedback, about another person's annoying behavior can be incredibly difficult. Many people are afraid that the other person will be offended and therefore avoid confrontation. That's not so strange, because you make yourself vulnerable by confronting someone with an issue. After all, you never know how the other person will respond.
