A critical necessity for success of individuals or societies is adoption of non-gratified stance against the status quo and trying for fulfilling the ideal. To this aim, individuals in all levels of the society are required to become cognizant of their weaknesses and strengths. A major tool toward this is use of constructive criticism for reform and change. Constructive criticism has been wisely emphasized in many occasions by the supreme leader. The current research has used a descriptive-analytical method and employed documents to delve into this issue. After elaborating on the concept of constructive criticism, its weight and importance, the researcher has discussed the etiquettes of constructive criticism in the words of the supreme leader which include observing Islamic ethics, priority of self-criticism, considering the context and occasion, understanding necessities of criticism properly and criticizing the action rather than doer of the action.
