Erich von Hauske

I'm a CTO now and have lost a little bit of touch with my developer side :(

What I would've liked to be able to say to de CEO? “these two developers are doing everything that they can to get past the build problem.” and " these other 18 developers are doing everything they can to avoid this problem from happening again".

What this last point means is the tricky part, but some things come to mind like reflection workshops and training.

Bottom line, sometimes is more about how you say it than what you are saying. Remember to put yourself in the other person shoes and be sure that when you say it to yourself it makes sense and goes in accordance to the other person's values.
