Chapter 1. What is Critical Feedback?

When it comes to criticism, most of us believe it is more blessed to give than to receive. Yet, valid critical feedback from others, when properly given, can make the difference between success and failure in our lives. It provides us with information on what’s working and what’s not.

Why, then, do we find critical feedback so difficult to handle? Perhaps it is because most of us define critical feedback as Webster does in the dictionary: “the act of criticizing unfavorably.” We often view critical feedback as something totally negative, but critical feedback may also be defined as “the art of evaluating or analyzing with knowledge and propriety…” Thus, critical feedback, when viewed as an opportunity to expand one’s understanding, is more often a tool for achieving positive results. Properly given, critical feedback becomes constructive feedback.
