Deciphering Constructive Versus Destructive Criticism On The Job

January 13, 2014  |  

 

Are you on the defensive prior to the meeting?

One way to decipher positive criticism from negative criticism is by analyzing your own expectations prior to the meeting. Are you already feeling defensive and guarded? Are you already expecting a negative outcome before the conversation gets underway? This could lead to miscommunication for both parties. Be open and understanding before receiving feedback about your work and you might get a more positive message that could help you become a better employee.
