So, you just finished what you thought was a great project atwork, and now your boss is listing all the things you need to improve upon. Don't get discouraged; constructive criticism is a key part of any job. Through this article, learn how to accept criticism and do your job as well as possible.
- Always remember that it is your work being criticized, not you. For example, if your co-worker is criticizing a letter you wrote, forget that you ever wrote it. Pretend that someone else did, and your co-worker is merely asking you to revise it for them.
- Remember, your co-worker is not doing this because he or she does not like you and/or your work. They are doing this because they want you to improve your work.
- Whatever you do make sure that it is the best from your side. People who have difficulty accepting criticism are less likely to succeed in their profession.
- Always give yourself sometime to think before responding, will save you loads of problems later
- Often coworkers find your mistakes because they want to make a mark of their own. It is a good hack to leave one obvious mistake that is easy to solve; your boss and coworkers can see it and tell you about (and feel they've contributed). Once they found that, their hunger to find mistakes will be satisfied and you can get away with things that would otherwise have been noticed.
