The feedback sandwich is one way to organize your feedback so it's more balanced and easier to deliver. But it is not always the most efficient approach to create new behaviors, It is time to be blunt about a practice that that is widely spread but not always the best.

By offering “keep behaviors,” or praise, at the same time you're offering “change behaviors,” or criticism, you demonstrate to employees that you see performance strengths as well as performance deficits.

But the question here is should we get rid of the feedback sandwich? Giving feedback – just like every management tool – is not one-size-fits-all.

Every employee has a different approach to productivity and emotional stability. Hence being direct about certain tasks and approaches will not only help employers understand their employees better but will also build strong and genuine relationships.
