Obtaining constructive criticism can be a powerful exercise. For some, it may confirm the perceptions they already had of themselves. Others will find it to be an eye-opening experience.

 

For the most part, you’ll find that people feel flattered to be a part of your proactive personal development.

 

Does obtaining feedback and constructive criticism really work? For me, it’s provided an opportunity to learn things about myself I didn’t always know.

 

===> The feedback also allowed me to adjust certain behaviors so I could positively impact the perception of others. <===

 

What’s not to love about that?

Don’t get me wrong, I still believe that we should still be investing in “things” such as technology to put into the hands of our students as they can give us some transformational opportunities for learning, but our best investment, in any organization, is always people.

Originally post on Figuring It Out The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. Alvin Toffler I was recently ask..

Are you learning, and unlearning?

Unlearning is the real challenge here ... the learning comes easy after that.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, March 16, 2013 6:58 PM

"When we unlearn something it requires us to be vulnerable to our own fallibility.

It requires us to collaborate and be open to others’ thoughts and opinions

It requires us to be to critical thinkers and push the limits of our preconceived ideas.

It requires us to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes”.

It requires moving beyond the limitations of “I” and move towards the power of “we”

It requires us to persevere in our thinking and our efforts – without threat of humiliation or being labelled stupid."

Such individual and group attributes require a trusting collegial culture amongst teachers which requires continual effort and focus.

Unlearning is fascinating if one is willing to let go of their certainties for a while
