Be empathetic

Receiving critical comments is hard. “It doesn’t matter how skillful you are at delivering feedback. It still stings,” says Porter. Don’t be overly harsh, listen to the other person’s perspective, & stay calm. Also, avoid the word “you” if you can. “Subtle word choices can make a conversation feel like a dialogue rather than an attack,” says Hauser. For example, instead of saying, “This is what I think you could have done differently,” say, “This is what I think could have been done differently.”
