How to Know if You’re Getting Feedback or Criticism

feedback

Feedback is delivered with the intention of helping someone.

Criticism is delivered with the intention of harming someone.

Feedback is meant to lift people up.

Criticism is meant to push people down.

Feedback offers actionable ideas and suggestions.

Criticism offers a bunch of whining and complaints.

People who deliver feedback do it because they care about you.

People who deliver criticism typically only care about themselves.

Feedback is an act of courage.

Criticism is an act of cowardice.

Feedback happens privately.

Criticism happens publicly.

If you can find someone who will give you feedback you should hang onto them, and heed their advice.

If you find someone who criticizes you, pay them no mind and do what you can to separate from them.

Feedback is something you should listen to.

Criticism is something you should ignore.

Feedback is something you should give.

Criticism is something you should keep to yourself.

However, the one thing that both feedback and criticism have in common is that they are given to leaders.

They are given to people who are making things happen.

They are given to people who are growing.

They are given to people who are making a difference in the world.

If you are receiving feedback or criticism, it’s because you are in some way out in front of a crowd.
