Deciphering Constructive Versus Destructive Criticism On The Job
In what setting are you receiving the criticism?
Expect to receive criticism on your work in the privacy of an office, between you, your supervisor and possibly their boss, depending on the situation and severity of the mistake. Criticism and feedback can quickly turn negative when addressed out in the open at the office. In some cases, it is meant to embarrass you or make you an example in front of your employees. If you suspect this, try to reason with your supervisor to discuss the matter in private. Also give some thought to the kind of company you work for and the personalities you work with. Some things are unacceptable!
