Leading this team of rockstars led me to learn a few lessons. First, trust that your team has your back
. My team kicked it out of the ballpark from the beginning research phase to the end with our development handoff. I created a cadence and let the team do the rest! Second, manage expectations early and often
. Our clients were so eager to do it all. I had to negotiate what the team could deliver to ensure the design team was capable of handling the work. In this case, we learned to communicate openly and honestly (which came in handy around finals time because our design team delivered early). Lastly, working for a product you believe in will give you the strength to go above and beyond
. My team ended up delivering on more than we promised because we really believed in the ScholarJet team. I’m so excited that they are still going strong! Check out their website
