The ability to give and take criticism in a positive fashion is essential to business (not to mention personal) success. Day-to-day tasks such as performance appraisals, team participation, customer service, quality control, and managing conflict all depend on giving and taking criticism well – not an easy thing to do! Highly complex and difficult to handle emotionally, criticism can be a destructive, and even a dangerous force. The Power of Positive Criticism shows you how to transform criticism from a negative, relationship-damaging encounter to a constructive, motivating, beneficial experience for everyone involved.
If you want to improve your skills in this important area, The Power of Positive Criticism will help. The book provides tools to help you hone your criticism skills, including Criticism Inventory, a valuable aid enabling you to gather the information that will help facilitate your abilities in giving and taking criticism.
