5 Rules from Rabbi Wolpe on offering criticism.
In this time of self-introspection, it’s often easier to take other people’s inventory instead of our own.
Also, we often feel that telling other people something that could be hurtful under the guise of “just being honest” is okay.
Rabbi Wolpe offers 5 Rules for offering criticism to others.
2. Precede and follow criticism with genuine statements of affection
4. Take your time beforehand. Don’t speak out of haste or anger.
5. Be willing to hear criticism in return.
