Keep Yourself Open to Criticism

Cperky's Blog

In the business world, unlike in the art world, critique is often negatively equated with criticism. But constructive criticism is essential in any arena that requires creativity, innovation, and problem-solving.

Since leadership requires all three, leaders need to be sure they are not only open to criticism, but that they actively seek it out. Ask people — direct reports, peers, customers — to poke holes in your ideas and approaches. Critique can be a useful approach to test ideas and keep people and teams accountable.

Adapted from “Critique Me, Please” by John Maeda.
