Here's the situation: I've been with the company for quite a long time working with same people. From time to time we're organized into teams to work on different projects and about a week I joined one of those (they had started a month ago). Team Lead is a nice guy, but honestly I don't quite like some of his ways. Things that bugger me the most:
- Too many 'I' and 'me', like 5-6 in one sentence.
- Related to the first one: with his messages he (unwittingly I'm sure) draws clear line between 'I, person who decides what and how to do' and 'you, guys who do as I say'
I honestly believe that an effective team lead shall be part of a team, which means it should rather be 'it would be good if we do it like that, lets discuss if you don't agree', rather than 'I'd like you to do it like that'. Etc.
Now the question: are there any good short articles/posts in the internet covering the topic ? I would share it with the team as 'an interesting reading', hoping the team lead does get the hint :)
