The Most Constructive Criticism Offers An Alternative

Advertisement

You might think you’re offering Constructive Criticism.

But often it is just received as Criticism. Negativity. Pessimism.

The best way to ensure that your criticism is seen as being truly constructive is to offer an alternative.

BUT…that doesn’t make it a MUST.

After all, the person who you are criticising, who has created the thing you are critiquing, is supposed to be an expert in their field.

You simply identifying a possible problem, shortfall or failing, should be enough for them to go away and find an alternative.

Still, where possible…try offering an alternative along with your criticism.
