Deciphering Constructive Versus Destructive Criticism On The Job
Who is the criticism coming from?
One surefire way to tell if the criticism you are receiving on the job is for your benefit or downfall is who the feedback is coming from. If it is coming directly from your supervisor in a one-on-one meeting, then most likely, it is to help you get better as an employee. If you are receiving advice and backlash from fellow co-workers, team members or from your supervisor “through the grapevine,” you may need to consider whether it’s for your good or not.
