Cool Cat Teacher Blog
This is a new blog I came across today. (Ok. I'm new to this. The rest of you have probably been reading this one for ages.) I thought it was brilliant.
Particularly this post titled "Watch who you listen to". In it Vicki Davis talks about four types of people who give you feedback and to be cautious of who you listen to.
The "perpetual critic" is often easy to spot and can be incedibly draining to deal with. Not so easy to identify are the partial talebearer and the manipulated mouthpiece.
Who do you listen to? Or more importantly what kind of person are you in your interactions with others? Mmmmmmm! Food for thought here.
