With the aggressive deliverables and meticulous nature required from IT professionals, failures from you technical staff are all but inevitable. And when problems such as these occur, criticism can often come down forcefully from leadership, especially when a high-pressure outcome is on the line.

But, because of how fast-paced the industry is, there simply is no time for IT professionals to do anything but take that feedback in stride, implement any necessary changes and illustrate to their team that they understand their expectations and won’t repeat the same error again.

But, as important as it is for technical employees to bounce back in the wake of, let’s say a poor coding review, people in leadership need to recognize how their approach to providing criticism is deeply intertwined with whether a weakness can be turned into a strength.

With that in mind, we recently put together a guide entitled ‘Step into my office: Best Practices for Critical IT Performance Reviews,’ and wanted to share with anyone in business leadership or human resources.
