Some folks push back against our feedback model because it's "nitpicking." It's not. Here's why.

The Manager Tools Feedback Model (MTFM) tackles performance communications completely differently than most managers do. Most of us get it wrong. We wait too long. As our friend Matt Bintliff likes to say, "sooner and shorter, not longer and later."

But that means the model often encourages managers to address problems when they're small. And some folks think managers are then nitpicking.

On the contrary, we're being smart.
