They are put in a position to always select an appropriate discussion format and setting so that employees always feel comfortable and open during discussions. In such a climate, recognition, but also criticism, can be received and equally perceived as motivating. As a result, employees, regardless of the situations, will perceive the dialogue as a valuable impulse for their professional development.
