Here’s a brief conclusion of a wonderful article I recently read.

How to humbly give and receive corrections.

When giving correction:
– Ask clarifying questions to gain a more accurate understanding. Don’t assume.
– Be graciously frank. Don’t hint or overqualify. Just say what you see with the humility that you might not be seeing perfectly.
– Undergird, don’t undermine. Construct, don’t destruct. Be a strength by helping to find a solution that pursues the good of everyone involved.

When receiving correction:
– No prideful deflections. If the correction is needed, humbly receive it.
– Listen for God’s direction. God likes to lead us in ways that cultivate our humility.
– Correction is a gift, and not only for you. Your correction may also be someone else’s provision.
