Problems in the Workplace are inevitable.
So, what works?
Things work when people with a positive attitude are always trying to fix those problems well.
There are days when we plan something but deal with too many problems at work. Not only these, then there are conflicts, and we have people who differ in their opinions.
Criticizing your subordinates and shouting at them is the last thing you must do at work.
When things go wrong, what works is constructive criticism. One must sit down and analyze “What led to those problems? Why aren’t things working the way the team had planned? what should we do to increase productivity?” instead of criticizing people and making them feel incompetent.
It is always wise to take strategic feedback from the other person.
As they say,
Attack Reasons, not people.”
Instead of questioning one competency, what works is when we criticize someone with a more positive approach, where we don’t accuse or blame each other.
Here, the leader should always focus on what changes they should bring so that things work well and increase their productivity at the Workplace. If they find there is a skill gap, they try to fix the gap with proper training at the Workplace.
Who loves getting criticism at work? But people with a Positive Attitude heal from that criticism sooner, don’t hold a grudge, swallow their pride and resolve their problems as soon as possible.
People with a positive attitude always try to learn things from those problems and control- how they must react to that criticism well.
There is always a way to resolve problems satisfactorily. But often, a few things make it difficult for all to fix those problems.
Things such as subordinates usually either refrain from criticizing seniors or we get too intimidated by people who are excellent at work. Other than that, there are reasons such as personal conflicts, fear, and uncertainties that make resolving some problems at the Workplace even more challenging.
