As leaders, we always face criticism. We dish it out too. Some of it is helpful, and some of it is not. Like medicine, it all depends on administration and dose. But here’s the problem: If we’re quick to judge, we’re upping the odds that we’ll misdiagnose and seriously hurt someone.
With that in mind, there are at least three reasons we should be slow to judge.
1. WE SOMETIMES DON’T HAVE THE FULL STORY
2. WE OFTEN PROJECT OUR OWN ISSUES
3. WE USUALLY REGRET IT LATER
Criticism is like medicine. It’s poison unless carefully administered at the right dose. Michael Hyatt
