Constructive criticism is essential for creativity, innovation, and problem solving. To succeed in life you need all these three and therefore, you need to be sure not only that you are open to criticism, but you actively seek it out.
Don’t simply ask for general feedback but ask people- direct reports, peers, close friends- to poke holes in your ideas and approaches.
Critique can be a useful approach to test your ideas and keep people and your team accountable!!
