Taking it in stride
negative feedback can sting. Here's how to bounce back stronger than ever
A 2015 survey by TriNet Perform and Wakefield Research found that nearly half (47 percent) of millennial workers leave a performance review feeling like they can't do anything right. Yet the ability to put negative feedback in perspective and attack the root cause of the problem can help project managers create an action plan to improve their performance -- and boost their careers. Becoming more engaged, rather than retreating, often leads to better business outcomes as well, according to a 2015 Gallup report. When critical feedback heads their way, savvy project practitioners know better than to shrug it off.
