Find the Coaching in Criticism

Find the Coaching in Criticism | Emotional Intelligence Quotient | Scoop.it

You may think that there are a thousand ways in which feedback can push your buttons, but in fact there are only three, say these two negotiation teachers from Harvard Law School. Feedback -- whether justified or not -- is hard to judge impartially when it doesn’t square with what you think is true, when you don’t trust the person providing it, or when it threatens your basic sense of yourself. ....

Patricia Clason's insight:

Targeted toward how to receive feedback as valuable coaching, this is a VERY GOOD article for both giver and receiver. Take the time to read it!

Patricia Clason's curator insight, February 9, 2014 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, 2014 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, 2014 7:01 PM

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