    • Eileen Dunkley-Shim Jamaica I also think a rounded comment would be more helpful...its very demotivating to hear what you are doing wrong. It may help to point out what is right and great about that employee and then mention that you have noticed a change in their attitude or productivity level and point the conversation in that how can we get back to that productive level.
