Here are some major points that stood out to me:
Always be the ‘new guy’.
Ask questions all the time, especially to clarify vocab that might be unfamiliar. It allows individuals to approach new experiences with a sense of curiosity and open-mindedness, rather than feeling discouraged by a lack of knowledge or skill. Being a novice also means that there is room for growth and learning, which can lead to personal and professional development. Embracing the role of a beginner can help individuals to be more humble and willing to ask for help, which can foster collaboration and teamwork.
Co-collaborate as much as possible.
When in calls or meetings, try to always share your screen for writing notes, etc, so others can better accompany the decision making. Give demonstrations to your team, and your clients. This has been very valuable for Acorn, as there are a lot of moving parts to the operation. With the work being more of a show than a tell, it's important to have a suite of visual references we can share with our customers, and routines we can engage them in. By providing visual examples and cultivating environments for participation, teams can really drive forward results.
As a PM, always try to encourage feedback from others. This includes the good and the bad. The ways in which this can occur need to be considered as well. Being able to only provide good feedback can create an environment of complacency. Being able to provide negative feedback runs the risk of breeding resentment. Nevertheless, feedback is essential to driving results. Try to laugh about it as the decisions, at the end of the day, tend to be fairly arbitrary - but can create a ton of stress for stakeholders and team members.
