I’ve been a martial arts instructor for the past 12 years and at my school it was called PCP (Praise, Correct, Praise you savages). It works because you’re letting the person know you’re on their side and want to help them. However, using the the phrase “but” after the first praise nullifies the initial praise. “This looks good BUT do this…” just makes it seem like it didn’t really look good.
Critiquing is hard to give as well as hard to take but at the same time, there are ways to avoid the other person’s ego or to Jedi Mind Trick them into accepting feedback easier.
