As human beings, we owe allegiance to those we choose to serve so long as it's a mutually beneficial relationship. Part of that allegiance is being willing to share the feedback they need to hear, even if it's uncomfortable, making sure they understand that it's coming from a place of love and support. Feedback is the breakfast of champions. Sometimes it can taste bitter, but ideas on how to move forward can help the recipient quickly digest it and grow.
