The Good News Is That ‘Bad News’ Can Actually Be ‘Good News’

Is it really true that learning of bad news can actually be good news? According to the most successful operators in our high-hospitality based Serviced Workspace industry, it’s absolutely true. Hearing or reading bad reviews and complaints isn’t something to shy away from, get defensive about, be traumatized over, and then sweep under the rug. A negative review is an opportunity, if we know how to handle it.

It might take an adjustment to one’s philosophical approach in order to see the full value and benefits of complaints and bad reviews; but the last thing you want to do is dismiss them, or worse yet, shoot the messenger. Don’t take what’s often a hidden gift from a reviewer and turn it into an irreversible fiasco just so that you can prove you’re right – or worse yet, that the client or reviewer is wrong.
