Chapter 18. How can You Critique Your Manager? > Exercise 1: Criticism Pitfalls

Exercise 1: Criticism Pitfalls

Check the attitudes you have that inhibit your giving criticism:

___ If I wait long enough, the situation will probably resolve itself, so I do not have to get involved
___ Since I do not like to receive criticism, I cannot imagine my supervisor would; therefore, I choose to ignore the problem
___ I criticize indirectly by using sarcasm or jokes
___ I would rather complain to my co-workers than criticize my manager directly
___ There never seems to be a right time to criticize, and I keep putting off giving criticism
___ It takes so much time to criticize effectively, I would rather do more work than take the time to give feedback to my supervisor
___ I am unsure of how my manager will respond to my criticism; therefore, I avoid giving it
___ I am not perfect, and my boss has so much more experience than I do; who am I to judge my supervisor’s behavior?
___ If I give my boss negative feedback, it may be used against me at my next performance evaluation
___ I have let the situation go on for too long now, and I am so angry that I am sure I’m going to blow up and mishandle the situation
