Constructive Criticism

In a general atmosphere where learning is the name we give our mistakes it is easier to take criticism without being defensive about it. Always criticize in private and never in front of others, criticize the action not the person, be specific and avoid sweeping generalizations. Provide suggestions on how they can improve and invite the other person to join you in thinking of ways to do it. Be assertive in your criticism in an honest straightforward way, be personal about it and don't bring in other people's opinions into the discussion.
