109/365 – “ Why do you give constructive criticism? “
I love both giving and receiving constructive criticism.
When receiving, I find that good criticism is the kind that leads to a tangible change in perspective or process.
When giving it – I’ve equally felt the reverse should be true too: Good criticism = Change of behavior.
But maybe that frame is wrong.
We can’t control the behavior of others, only ourselves – which means that the possibility for growth and learning also lies within ourselves.
Maybe a better measure for giving constructive criticism are the lessons we learn on how we want to behave in the future.
