Criticize to hold people in place. Encourage to help them grow.

PS: Proof of the above is left to you to compare with your own experience.

PPS: There’s a huge difference between criticizing and noting something that’s not up to par. The former always generates further dysfunction. The latter is necessary and opens the door to better performance and satisfaction.

Choose to Encourage

Encouragement works far better than criticism or, said euphemistically, “feedback.” Criticism causes resistance. Encouragement opens. It is the wiser, more capable part of us reminding them of their wiser, more capable part of themselves.

Try it and watch them shine.
