Background on Chat: Respectful Criticism vs. Contempt

In work settings and in everyday life, people offer criticism that comes across as contempt. When leaders criticize those they lead in a contemptuous manner, it leaves scars that reduce performance and productivity. Respect criticism on the other hand, can help everyone grow. How can people — especially leaders — give respectful criticism vs. contempt. Please join us this Sunday Dec. 12th, 2021 in global #PeopleSkillsChat on Twitter at 10am EST to explore how to engage in respectful criticism instead of showing contempt. It’s the first time we are exploring this topic and I look forward to reading your insights and perspectives in the chat!
