Do well meaning friends and relatives criticise your online business.
Regardless of our profession, most of us are looking for ways to improve our work. Whether that has to do with being more efficient, thorough, or broader in our thinking, feedback can be very useful in helping you pinpoint which areas you should focus on, and what you need to do to improve. But if we’re being totally honest, occasionally being on the receiving end of feedback — primarily when it’s negative, or poorly delivered — can be a challenge.
There is an unexpected upside to criticism, though, according to a new study in the Academy of Management Journal: It can promote creativity. The co-author of the paper, Yeun Joon Kim, a Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, used to work as a software engineer for Samsung — a position where he received a lot of feedback that inspired this research. Specifically, he wondered if receiving criticism at work improved his job performance.
In short, he found that negative feedback can both help and hinder the creative process, and much of that comes down to where the criticism comes from. If it’s coming from a boss or peer, for example, people tended to be less creative. But if the negative feedback came from another employee of a lower rank, it made the person more creative. When you’re in a position to be delivering feedback yourself, and want to ensure it’s well-received and productive, do so with compassionate directness. And if you’re the recipient of negative feedback (delivered with or without compassion), here are three easy ways to take that information and use it to fuel your creativity.
The above is part of an article written by Elizabeth Yuko
I recall reading once that there is no such thing as constructive criticism
However i don’t believe that.
Just the same i don’t know about you, I am uncomfortable with it.
It’s something i need to think on for a while, ask myself some questions.
Are they right
Did they understand my point of view
Of course it also depends a lot on who is delivering the criticism.
Is it someone i respect that knows what they are talking about.
I believe Elizabeth’s article makes some good insights you can read it here
We need to handle criticism in the right way if we want to be successful in our online business.
