Changing Your Beliefs About Critical Feedback

Let’s look at your beliefs about critical feedback. If you believe that all critical feedback is negative and means that you are a failure, then the outcome for you of receiving critical feedback will be a rejection of yourself and your ability. That may result in an inability to move forward, change, grow, and develop. In fact, you may stagnate, never breaking down the walls with which you have protectively surrounded yourself.

In today’s rapidly changing environment, your ability to adapt, change, and grow as a result of feedback is increasingly important. One definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” You cannot sit still and expect to maintain your position, much less grow. Today, lifelong learning is the norm, and critical feedback is our key to that learning and growth. You must learn to accept and welcome critical feedback as a vehicle for learning. If you can change how you perceive critical feedback, the outcome of that feedback will be much less stressful.
