Welcome criticism with open arms

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

One of the most overlooked strengths of leaders is their willingness to heed criticism. By treating even stinging feedback with grace and openness, you demonstrate a maturity that will impress others.

If someone offers you an unsolicited critique of your management style or technical prowess, stay calm. Signal that you’re receptive, not defensive. Encourage the speaker to continue—even if you hate to hear it.

Ask questions, then repeat the gist of the criticism to confirm you understood it.

Above all, don’t argue. Reserve judgment. By listening with an open mind, you show your eagerness to learn and grow—a sure sign of a future CEO.
