Week 4

Handling Criticism

  1. Criticism is part of our lives because everybody has an opinion
  2. Constant self-criticism makes it difficult for you to handle criticism from others. 
  3. Perfectionism and inner fears about outside criticism can stop you from progressing on your aims.
  1. Never take it personally
  2. Coping strategies – what are yours? 
  3. Do not allow criticism to define your self-worth
  4. Change the focus of the criticism – highlight your strengths, and look at building on the positives
  5. Take the negatives on-board but don’t allow these comments to make you feel bad about yourself
  6. Dismiss destructive criticism – it doesn’t hold weight or value!
  7. See the value in constructive criticism and thank the critic. Even if we disagree with them 

The Core Principles of Professionalism

  1. Integrity
  2. Respect 
  3. Ethics
  4. Responsibility
  5. Commitment

An organisation will do all that it can to protect its reputation; Reputation can take years of hard work to build, and can be destroyed overnight, by one person’s improper actions

Treat others as you would wish to be treated!
Be accountable, and be sure of the persona you wish to portray.

Got it - Now Keep It
