Dealing with Criticism
Friday, October 25, 2013 12:00 AM
Try not to be intimidated by criticism.
Look for the wisdom in criticism.
Consider criticism as feedback – friendly advice and…
consider the source.
“Suspend” reading into or interpreting the criticism, at least at first.
Walk in the shoes of the person who criticizes you.
Take the time to evaluate.
Seek a 2nd opinion…then be a change agent to yourself as needed.
Be assertive in your response if the criticism is unwarranted or unfair.
