Latin: dīscō from /*dikskō/, meaning “I learn“
Whether you're an individual contributor or a manager who's getting a bit long-in-the-tooth, we all need to work with other people to get stuff done. So we've built bite-sized guides which focus on action, laying out clearly how to work with all the weird emotional unconcious parts of us humans.
There are hundreds of business books published every year, all with clashing advice. We've combed the best frameworks from famous authors to unknown researchers, then applied them directly into the real world. So you can get straight and clear on how to act when.
Theory is nothing without practice. That's why we've created specific hard conversations for you to role-play. Firstly making those learnings stick, but also so you can get a solid sense for what feels right for you.
Ok, let's make this quick, I've gone through the backlog and set the priorities. I assume everyone is happy, so let's move on.
Umm, actually I was really hoping we'd be able to rebuild the queuing system. I've been mentioning it for weeks now.
We don't have time for that ahead of code freeze, rebuilding just isn't a priority.
That's a good try but you're the expert here and deserve to be heard. Starting again, how would you have said this to a friend rather than your boss?
Yes these improvements are important but we really need to sort the queuing system. If we don't, we'll definitely go down during the traffic spike next week.
That was much clearer and assertive. Now let's make it even better. Right now, we're trying to get Ron to buy into this refactor. Which means whether we like it or not, we need to sell the idea to him. So what does he care about? How could you phrase this in terms of what he stands to gain (e.g. money), avoiding what he's losing (e.g. time)?
This list is great as they'll make a big difference to topline in the long-run. However, the queuing system is struggling and will go down if the traffic levels go any higher. And this is really bad, because the losses from that kind of downtime would dawf the gains from these features.
Brilliant. We're really getting there. So finish off, how would you add a plan where you both get want you want? This will demonstrate yourself as a leader and make it clear you're both trying to get the best outcome.
