Many developers experience “bad days” at work from time to time. Leaving these unaddressed can lead to lost productivity, burnout, and, at worst, loss of a talent team member.
In this talk, we will look at an example “bad day” that draws on real-life examples from tech employees. We’ll then talk about how the interactions that occurred could have been made better and turn a bad day into a positive one. The result is that potential burnout can be turned into more cohesive and collaborative teams.
We’ll focus on practical areas such as code reviews, one-on-one meetings, and general day-to-day activities (like getting lunch or chatting about tech). Along the way, we’ll note how we might be negatively interacting with coworkers without knowing it and how we can practice simple actions to more positively engage with them instead.
