Mission for today: ask a team member for advice related to what you are working on. Take the advice.

Are you learning from the smart, experienced people around you? Most smart people are happy to share their knowledge, especially when they are asked. They are even happier if you listen and take the advice. Bonus: you may learn something new. Asking for, and taking, advice helps foster a learning and listening culture, which is something we are losing in this hectic world. However,  you may not want to ask the really busy person you helped yesterday.

When you have completed the mission, please share the results in the comments. Who did you ask and why?  Was it a positive experience?

About Liza Wood

After a dozen years leading video game development projects in a variety of roles, I decided to pursue a Master of Data Science at the University of British Columbia. Studying data science doesn’t mean I’m moving away from leading people. Growing data science teams need collaborative, pragmatic, Agile leadership to connect data to all areas of the business. I would like to share that point of view, along with my experiences, on this blog.
