Patricia Clason's curator insight, February 9, 10:42 AM

These tips for receiving feedback can be so valuable for anyone who is sensitive to criticism - and those who are carrying emotional wounds, like PTSD, can be hyper-sensitive. 

Amy Melendez's curator insight, March 11, 4:04 PM

From the article: "Your growth depends on your ability to pull value from criticism in spite of your natural responses and on your willingness to seek out even more advice and coaching from bosses, peers, and subordinates. They may be good or bad at providing it, or they may have little time for it—but you are the most important factor in your own development. If you’re determined to learn from whatever feedback you get, no one can stop you."

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 18, 7:01 PM

Receiving feedback is never easy, but here are some tips to handle it more constructively.
