The recent GOP failure marks a rare moment of demonstrated evidence that negative criticism and the opposition mindset create no value. Meanwhile, by elimination, the evidence also says that constructive criticism is more valuable for solving problems. This message is important for educators who are struggling to inspire building-wide buy-in for positive behavioral recognition in their schools, but it is also important to business leaders who have the same struggle trying to create a positive, creative culture.

  1. Reblogged this on Magnitudes of dissonance and commented:

Creative thinking, for the most part, is a commitment to the positive. Creativity constructs, whether it is an object, a process, or an experience, but it takes a lot of work and risk to the creative’s status and self-esteem. Destructive criticism, as Ryan says about opposition, is easy.
