I’ve found that criticism given online often is a negative experience for me. Usually because there doesn’t seem to be room for discussion and it is more of a power play of who’s right.
This Twitter thread by Sarah Mei on providing criticism to someone’s work is a refreshing take on how to give it in a way that’s useful to the person receiving it.
Key takeaway is:
So to effectively transmit information, you need to focus first & foremost on NOT BEING RIGHT & secondarily on BEING HELPFUL.
This is a good reminder to myself. Remove the focus on being right and lean towards helping.
