On authoritativeness in project work

If your projects need occasional major tweaks by management in order to reach their goals, that’s fine.

  • Not grokking the “vision”, or…
  • Working for management who doesn’t trust you

Employees need to be authoritative on their own work. After all, every employee is a consultant!
