Criticism (Receiving) and Attitude
Criticism (Receiving) and Attitude

Criticism:
Don’t take it personally.
Remember the fundamental attribution error.
Now ask yourself, “why are they criticizing?”

All criticism contains at least a grain of truth.

“It’s my thing” is not something to have an attitude about. — manager-tools newsletter.

Accepting responsibility for both the positive and the negative equals integrity.

Never let criticism fill you with doubt.

Listen, don’t interrupt. Interrupting is being closed to what the other is saying.

The critic’s best friend — your lizard brain.
