There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing and be nothing.

  • Aristotle

EAT-IN

Criticism is simply an ability to exercise critical judgment. In the workplace or in the family situation, this critical judgment can be difficult. Criticism can be constructive and equally destructive. The way our feelings are communicated to others play a key role in their success or failure in a practical task.

Constructive criticism aimed at correcting bad behavior should be used. A constructive criticism will most often be appreciated by employees. The purpose of today’s thought is to encourage managers to try to be constructive when criticizing their staff. A manager who is critical of everything is likely to be seen as a “slave driver”. In a work situation, this can lead to poor staff morale, high employee turnover and decreased productivity.

Subordinates should understand that the ones who you can’t are afraid you will. Therefore you are advised to stay positive and happy; work hard and don’t give up. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people.

TAKE-AWAY

The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.
