Nobody likes hearing criticism. During this learning journey, you'll see how you can be more open to receiving feedback. You'll do this by learning many different types of exercises. But first you need to see feedback as a learning opportunity instead of seeing it as criticism. Then after that, you'll realize that feedback isn't meant to be hurtful at all and rather you can use it as a tool to positively influence your life.

Get started and learn how to make the most of the feedback you receive!

Online course: Receiving feedback

I want to learn how to benefit from feedback.

Do you remember the last time you were addressed about your behavior? Maybe because you were late to school again or because you didn't complete your work as agreed. Or maybe you overuse a word or phrase that annoys others. Or you constantly look at your telephone during meals. Nobody wants to listen to criticism. During this learning journey, you'll discover how to deal with criticism and what it can do for you. Once you've accomplished that, you'll be begging for feedback! The result: accepting constructive criticism without feeling attacked or misunderstood.

  • View feedback as a learning opportunity
  • Good feedback allows for mutual respect
  • Know when to take things with a grain of salt

How to deal with criticism

This learning journey is for anyone and everyone who wants to learn how to deal with accepting constructive criticism. Everyone, right. Sometimes it's because we do something someone else doesn't like and other times, it's the opposite, they want to let us know they appreciate something. In either case, it doesn't mean that your behavior is good or bad. It just means that the other person finds the behavior good or bad. For a lot of people, accepting constructive criticism can be stressful. Some people get angry, others become very insecure. That can happen even when someone hears a compliment! How do you deal with constructive criticism in the workplace? Does it make you uncomfortable to receive feedback? Not necessary! Feedback is valuable. During this learning journey, you'll learn how to benefit from the feedback you receive. Use it to your advantage!

  • 2 to 6 weeks' completion time
