Criticism is a form of communication

Criticism means someone wants to tell you what you're doing for them. It is an opportunity to learn more about the person and change them into satisfied customers or audience members.

Take some time before you respond. Someone who can take and act on criticism means they can work towards a better outcome.

How to respond to criticism

How to respond to criticism

How you respond to criticism is vital. Try to avoid getting into an argument. Instead, lead the exchange into a discussion on how to solve the issue. You'll waste less time guessing how to fix things. "So, you'd like to change the design - what would you say is the main thing that ought to be different?"

Turn your words into action to demonstrate that you can listen to feedback.

Don't take it personally

Don't take it personally

If someone doesn't like your work, don't take offense. Even if you feel the criticism is unfair, don't react negatively as you can irreparably damage your reputation.

A good professional can take criticism and not respond as if it's an attack. At the very least, they can leave with their reputation intact.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
