All people benefit from an awareness of flaws, willingness to change, and growth in positive directions. It's important to be able to hear the positive advice within constructive criticism to find this awareness and power to change. There are many approaches to giving constructive criticism, such as tough love, positive reinforcement, shock statements, and motivational talk.
What approaches are the most beneficial? Does it vary based on the person or situation? Some people may need to be slapped in the face information-wise while others may need a softer touch. A possible downside of a harsher approach may be that people can't hear the positive side because they get offended. Thus, once they hear something critical, they may stop listening! And the very thing that could help them is what they detest and reject defensively.
Regardless of the approach, how can people better receive constructive criticism? What can you do to listen for the deeper meaning and identify the positive advice that you can apply to your own life? How can we be more open to having our flaws exposed by others without getting defensive? And do we need both approaches?
