Discussed in this episode
How many times have you been in the middle of a project making TONS of progress, when someone decides it’s time to throw out a new idea or change course?
Don’t worry I can sense your groans as you are reading this ;)
Then there are some on your team that don’t say a word…
Whether you are leading the project or helping out, you know it’s important to hear your teammates out to uncover challenges early on and prevent them from derailing your progress.
But how do you encourage and instill confidence in the introverted ones, and is there ever a point where you can stop entertaining new ideas and start building?
Well in this week’s episode of Build, we’re going to answer these questions and more!
We’re continuing our conversation from last week with Jen Leech who is the VP of Engineering at Truss, a software consultancy. While our examples are based on software projects, much of the advice applies to any project. As you watch today’s episode you’ll learn:
- Why it’s not new ideas that take a project of course but the implications they have.
- How to teach teammates to think through their ideas, the impact it will have on a project, and instill confidence to share them.
- When to stop entertaining new ideas, building a consensus, and get to work!
