Chapter 30. Assess Yourself > Responding to Unjustified Criticism

Responding to Unjustified Criticism

The first thing you must do when your supervisor criticizes you unjustifiably is to set a psychological barrier so that you do not take the criticism personally. One of the basic foundations for handling criticism effectively is self-confidence.

You must be good at what you do and believe in yourself or you will most likely crumble under your boss’ criticism. If you believe in yourself, your abilities, skills and knowledge, criticism is much less threatening, and you will be able to take it less personally. You must choose to let the criticism have no impact. Do not countercriticize or countermanipulate or, worse yet, talk behind your manager’s back.
