Deciphering Constructive Versus Destructive Criticism On The Job
Has the conversation reached a personal level?
Constructive criticism should only address your professional attributes, not your personal ones. If the conversation is centered on more personal issues or comparing you to another employee, it’s not constructive advice. In fact, it’s downright hurtful. Try to bring the conversation full circle and inquire about feedback to use to produce better results rather then personal issues.
