The Power of Positive CriticismBook - 2000
"Some people just can't take criticism. And some people just can't give it--not in a positive, motivating, mutually beneficial manner, anyway. That's too bad, because criticism is essential to many aspects of business, such as performance appraisals, quality control, and team functioning, to name a few.
This empowering book helps readers take the sting out of criticism--and transform it from a destructive, demoralizing disaster into an energizing, educating experience that builds relationships and increases individual and organizational success.

* Think of criticism as a positive thing
* Become strategic criticizers and develop their skill in using the power of positive criticism
* Stay cool, calm, and collected when giving or getting criticism
* Criticize their boss--without getting fired, and more."
