When dealing with peers or subordinates, tact is important when giving criticism. Focus on the specific thing(s) that need to be improved, offer helpful suggestions, and don't make it personal.

In my experience, those who needed honesty the most were senior management and executives. Too many people were reluctant to tell them sad truths or engage them in debate. They were also susceptible to being bamboozled by technical people who promised things that couldn't be delivered or touted designs as if they'd already been coded and proven, when in reality they'd been prototyped at best, and it was debatable whether they could ever be productized.
