First, constructive criticism tends to be specific and comes with the possibility of correcting the problem. An example could be, "the new filing system you created is unclear to a number of co-workers who are used to having each category separated instead of everything filed alphabetically together. When you get a chance, you can change it". A social power play criticism is generalized, sweeping, and something that can't be fixed, "you are too short to be in charge."
Secondly, a constructive criticism should include something positive because nothing in the world is 100% a problem. This gives the person hope they can correct the problems. It's helpful if the positive comment is just as specific as the criticism, so it's better if someone says, "This part you are doing exactly right, and this part you can take a look at and correct in this specific way".
I guess I say all that because the times I've worked in professional environments, I do think there is a fair amount of power play criticism going on, so there isn't always something wrong with a person to feel like it's not constructive. It isn't personal though, because people do it en masse, and in response to their own ego defensiveness (it's been done to them so they have to do it to someone else, anyone and fast to regain ego balance). I take negative social criticism badly and also feel every bad vibe, so I don't have a great solution for it, but I do wish people could focus more energy on positive qualities they possess and others posses because life is really short to only think about the problems all the time.
