Human nature is - being reactive.

And in our business where we ride emotional roller coaster often,

We are likely to overreact.

Lou Ludwig 's excellent advice in this re-post

Don’t Overreact Emotionally . . . . to Criticism

Original content by Lou Ludwig

Don’t Overreact Emotionally . . . . to Criticism 

Never react emotionally to criticism. Analyze yourself

to determine whether it is justified. If it is, correct

yourself, otherwise, go on about your business.”

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale 1898 - 1993, Author, Minster  

 

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Don’t over react emotionally to . . . . criticism

 

When you are on the receiving end of criticism . . . . don’t overreact . . . .

 

Look at the source of the criticism . . . . and determine if the criticism has merit. When the criticism is negative but valid . . . . Thank the person for sharing the information with you . . . . and make every effort to correct the situation.

 

When you’re at fault . . . . stay in control of your emotions . . . .  and the situation . . . . by admitting that you were at fault. Take responsible for your actions by admitting your responsible . . . . and you will defuse the other person . . . . and the situation will not be accelerated. 

 

When you analyze the criticism do it with an open mind . . . . and when you find that it’s not valid you have several choices.

 

Once you determine that the criticism is not valid . . . . you can  dismiss it . . . . and move forward.

 

When the criticism is coming from a person that has continued to criticism you without merit. . . . . Or not being truthful, you may want to professionally approach that person . . . .  and ask them for their help. Ask them to share with you the source of their criticism . . . . and work to clear up any areas of misunderstanding.

 

By approaching the person professionally . . . . you are very likely to neutralize their attacks on you.

 

Thank the person for their input and ask them to speak to you personally in the future. Before they share information (criticism) with other people to ensure that they have the facts are right.

 

Remain calm . . . . and in control of your emotions to find the best way to resolve the situation. When you react emotionally to the criticism in many cases that is . . . . exactly what the other person is looking for.   

 

Don’t overreact emotionally . . . . to criticism . . . . and you will find that you will remind in control of your emotions. As a result you will make far better decisions . . . . and remain in control of the conditions.

Praful, great post to re-blog!  I do my best not to over-react but, am not the best at confrontation if someone has 'wronged' me - I tend to move on and let it go!  It's typically not MY problem - it's theirs so, no sense stirring the pot!  For me, that would be the over-reaction!  :-)

(We all have some or the other limitations and we end up over reacting to the situation - glad you keep check on it, Debe.)
