Skillful criticism Consider the alternative. Skillful criticism is often one of the most effective ways to transmit useful information, which can only be used every chief. For example, the arrogant vice president could well refer (but, unfortunately, did not do so) to the software manufacturer in this manner: "The main difficulty at this stage is that the implementation of your plan requires too much time and thus increases costs. I would like you to even think of his proposal, and especially on the specification of the design to improve the software, and found a way to do the same job faster. " Takoevystuplenie would have an impact, reverse withering criticism: instead of to call the employee a sense of worthlessness, anger and protest, it leaves the hope that can still be corrected, and indicates where we must begin.
