Follow the “1% rule” when dealing with upset employees—especially if you’re the target. The rule: At least 1% of what angry employees say is accurate, regardless of how much they generalize.

Don’t dismiss the employee as a hothead or crackpot—even though you have plenty of “reasons” to do so. Accepting feedback—even when it sounds outrageous—will make you a better manager.
