If you don`t want people to be critical of you, don`t be critical of them. If you do have to give criticism, however, make sure it`s the type that is constructive. There is more than one right way to do things, so try not to be so set in your ways. Once you open yourself up to new possibilities, you`ll wonder why you were so strict about your processes and procedures in the first place. If you find something new that works for you, be sure to write down the details so that you can repeat your success in the future.
