Your Employees Want the Negative Feedback You Hate to Give from Harvard Business Review

I cordially do not agree the definition of negative feedback used in this article.

Generally, negative feedback examples are "being removed from a job or suffering some adverse consequence due to poor performance or receiving more or less direct indications of dissatisfaction from co-workers or the supervisor" (Herold, David M., and Martin M. Greller. "Research Notes. Feedback: The definition of a construct." Academy of management Journal 20.1 (1977): 142-147.)

The suggested corrective feedback, simply translated into negative feedback seems constructive, and simply 'positive feedback' rather than negative feedback.

However, the article gives an important insight. Employees wants more corrective (I prefer to constructive) feedback. 

Please give your people to have more constructive feedback like followings: 
1. Call suggestions for improvement, 
2. Explorations of new and better ways to do things, or 
3. Pointing out something that was done in a less that optimal way.
