The Economic Times: Negative feedback does more good than harm, may help you become creative

According to a recent study, to keep the creative juices flowing, employees should be receptive to criticism. “It’s a bit counterintuitive because we tend to believe we shouldn’t criticize the boss. In reality, most supervisors are willing to receive negative feedback and learn from it. It’s not that they enjoy criticism — rather, they are in a natural power position and can cope with the discomfort of negative feedback better,” said co-author Dr Yeun Joon Kim, University Senior Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour at Cambridge Judge Business School.
