5 Tips on Accepting Criticism Gracefully

Here are suggestions you can heed when facing criticism in the workplace. By Belle Yambao

article_accept-criticism-gracefully.jpgThough it's a wonderful feeling to receive glowing praises from our bosses and co-workers, this kind of feedback won't be the only thing we'll be getting at work, especially when we're just starting out. Compliments may be the big C in the workplace, but there's another one that's equally important: criticism. But while we easily accept compliments, criticism is more difficult to swallow.
