Telling the truth and making someone cry is better than telling a lie and make someone smile – Pablo Coelho
I recently received some negative feedback as it related to my transition from a Software Developer to a Systems Architect. This begs the question – Which would you prefer a positive feedback or a negative feedback?
For me that negative feedback was the boost I needed to continue on my path as a Systems Architect. Others may have taken it personal; however how do you know if you are on the right track without someone at least saying you are doing something wrong.
What I did when I got that negative feedback? I said ‘thank you’ and immediately set a meeting to get to the specifics of what I did incorrectly.
