LLR Pic 2

We all want to not only survive our life but thrive in it. 

We don’t want to just get through the day. We want to thrive through the day.

If you’re a long-time listener, you know the key to having that kind of life is to get everything in order. Every area of your life (emotional, relational, spiritual, physical, and financial) works together to make up your life as a whole. 

If all five areas are in order, you will live life rich. If they’re not, your life just might suck.

Today, I want to help you get everything in order. I’m giving you 10 steps to mastering constructive criticism that has served both me and my teams well. 

I’ve recently been going through this topic with some of my teams which has made me think about it more deeply. Now, I want to bring it to all of you. 

If you listen to and apply these 10 steps, your relationships–both personal and professional–will improve. These steps will help you function and focus so you can truly live life rich in every possible way. 

Tune in to learn the first five of them right now.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How criticism can be more beneficial than praise.
  • Why we need to clean out the clutter in our relationships.
  • Your goal should be to help, not to humiliate.
  • How to figure out if an issue is worthy of criticism.
  • Why constructive criticism needs to be specific.
  • Don’t undermine a person’s self-confidence or identity.
  • How to make it obvious that you value people.
  • The danger of comparison.
