Only Half Right

“Praise publicly and critique privately.”

Well, sure. But when we do this, and only this, we can come off as two-faced—as hypocritical. 

While this is a good thought and a good general rule of thumb, I think it’s actually only half right.

In addition to praising someone publicly, no one ever got in trouble for praising someone privately.
