This course will help you to successfully deal with criticism and failure, and turn these into constructive learning experiences.

Being able to constructively deal with failure and criticism are essential skills, but they are not easy to master. Often our harshest critic is ourselves, and it can be difficult to get the perspective we need to work out what criticism is valid and what is unhelpful.

This course provides you with some practical strategies for processing setbacks and dealing with criticism - both from others and from yourself.  These strategies will help you to turn setbacks into constructive learning experiences, tame your inner critic, and be kinder to yourself.
