How to Criticize

Bookmark and Share

Most criticisms suck:

  • You suck.
  • NO YOU SUCK
  • NOYOUTHESUCKONESON

Nothing changes for the better; they hate each other even more; their guards become stronger between the two.

That leads to an artificial relationship that becomes a battle between the two instead of a united front to fight the ^%^* ills of the world.

The Best Criticisms

The best criticisms make people:

  1. Seek to improve
  2. Throw down their defenses
  3. United against a common cause
  4. Instantly happier

How do you do that?

Try this:

  1. "You're not reaching your full potential."
  2. Then, explain ways they can reach their full potential.

Instead of having Bob having his guard up, he subconciously starts thinking:

  • 'OMG OMG OMG. I have the CAPACITY to do much better. OMG OMG OMG!!!'

Effective criticisms become compliments.

Bob, instead of focusing on you, focuses on how he can reach his full potential.

You two unite to ensure he will BE ALL HE CAN BE.

WIN/WIN.

High five!

Full potential.
