CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISMIt is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. The purpose of constructive criticism is to improve the outcome. In collaborative work, this kind of criticism is a valuable tool in raising and maintaining performance standards.
GARCC NEWSFLASH! As wonderful and as easy as it
sounds; giving and receiving constructive criticism appropriately or in the right manner without conflict can be a huge problem.
The sandwich approach should be taken; some positive----then
negative(communicating the problem with the work and not the person---
RECEIVING In the heat of the moment, many of us react
with defensiveness and anger or—even worse—attack the person giving us feedback. But the truth is, we need to get over it. We know there’s value in constructive criticism—how else would we identify weaknesses and areas of improvement?—and being able to handle it calmly and professionally will only help us maintain relationships and be more successful in everything we do.

1. Stop Your First Reaction
At the first sign of criticism, before
you do anything—stop!
2. Remember the Benefit of Getting Feedback ; namely, to improve your skills, work product, and relationships, and to help you meet the expectations that your manager and others have of you.
3. Listen for Understanding Allow the person to share his or her complete thoughts, without interruption. When he or she is done, repeat back what you heard.
5. Ask Questions: Now it’s time to process the feedback—you’ll probably want to get more clarity at this point and share your perspective.
6. Request Time to Follow Up Hopefully, by this point in the conversation, you can agree on the issues that were raised. Once you articulate what you will do going forward, and thank the person again for the feedback, you can close the conversation and move on.
4. Say Thank You.
CONCLUSION Constructive criticism is often the only
way we learn about our weaknesses—without it we can’t improve. When we’re defensive, instead of accepting and gracious, we run the risk of missing out on this important insight. Remember, feedback is not easy to give and it’s certainly not easy to receive, but it will help us now and in the long run.
DANKE! Criticism may not be agreeable, but
it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain
