"Have you ever thought about doing that...this way?" We've all heard it before, but when you hear from your boss, what do you do? Is it an order, or is he just giving you a pointer (take it or leave it)?
Well, that's what our hosts Zac and Errol discuss today on the 46th episode of Leadership in Tech. Follow along as they approach the issue of 'implied orders' from both the employers, and employees, point of view.
This week Zac and Errol discuss the effects that not following guidelines can have, and how best to deal with it. They touch on how psychological safe zones play into predicting a projects success, and how to deal with team members who may be showing resistance.
