Successful companies are built by great teams. Vision may come from one bright individual, but the effective execution of that vision comes from excellent general management skills. Great general managers create effective teams and companies. Experienced, highly skilled managers are hard to come by. The skills and experience that make a great engineer differ from those of a great manager. Also.. not everyone wants to manage. It is not how it leaves your mouth. It is more about how another person receives it.
Get to the point, reverse story... telling with SCQA - situation - complication - question - answer.

Psychological safety: autonomous, shared accountability cultivates learning.
How better to align with measurement?
- The company, team, individual
- Think significant and big - if done only with 70% is well enough.
- Not too many
- Every three months or less
- Never tie to bonus or compensation
