You like it when people do something to you at the last moment Good afternoon, colleagues. Tomorrow, January 30, on Saturday, we will have almost all day dedicated to interesting reports and speeches on the tasks of the team leaders and leaders of divisions (on the air). This time, we decided not to gather too many speakers, but to make several connected chains of performances from our coaches. First, let’s recall the program. After this, we want to share with you an interesting observation of how we postpone everything for the last moment. Tetics open marathon «Tasks of team leaders»[…]

Causes and consequences analysis

Unpleasant retrospective Hello! Let’s imagine: you came to your car in the morning and couldn’t start it to go to work. It’s a technical problem, but you don’t know what exactly has happened. You called a taxi or used the subway and got to work.The next morning you came to your car again, tried to start, got the same result, cussed uncleared roads, and again drove to work in an alternative way.For the third morning in a row, your car does not start, but now you have a new explanation – your employer chose an office too far from your[…]

When the ceiling collapses you for your own money

Why not buy in the record? Why are you messing me around? Hi everyone! It’s Slava Pankratov and today I want to discuss with you my personal history of fighting the stinginess, and also some interesting and not very pleasant discoveries that I made while investing in myself. As you may know, I am responsible for business development in our team. This includes money, advertising, hiring people, new products, and for some time also investments, shareholders, lawyers.It would seem that if I invest in people, in a team, in product development, and in experiments, then I should feel good about[…]

Boring and helpful tuition installments

We cover the interest Hello everyone! That is the case when all news fits in the topic and tagline 🙂 Not all things in our life need to be exciting, new, and innovative.  A fork, a spoon, a chair and a table have not changed structurally for a very long time, but they still work and we use them.  The installment plan from the bank is not the most, let’s say, space based and innovative products, but when it becomes a simple tool, the things we want are getting closer. Education is expensive, both in terms of time and cost.[…]

Where should you go if money doesn’t define everything clear

We have begun to write an overview or discussion of what has happened in IT over the past 10 years and why, sometimes, developers are paid more than managers (yes, sometimes; not always, like it was in previous years – who is interested, links can be found at the end of the note). And, all of a sudden, we realized that it turns out to be quite long and boring as if we were persuading you or ourselves about something. The story we are witnessing is not new, not the first or the last one. A younger methodology ( to[…]

Where does your time go?

Let’s collect statistics for further speculations We decided to figure out how much time we spend when we go to work and what we spend it on. If in the next two days we manage to collect such numbers, we might get an interesting study why some people consider work as an interesting place where you can grow and develop, while others have a monotonous routine without any light at the end of a tunnel. What numbers we need and what is the essence of the study which we want to fill with real data with your help. [+] 250[…]

The best changes don’t always start with dashes and hyper-efforts

Normal here and now is normal The main thing is to decide! In one quick motion! Quit tomorrow! Live day and night on the floor of the workshop or in the office until the first clients appear… Familiar intonation and expressions, right? At the same time, if everything is fine with you at the present moment, you don’t want to change it harshly and abruptly. Now it is [normal]. What will happen next is [not clear] and, most importantly, it is not clear if it will be so good later (and how much time this “later” will take), so that[…]

Childhood traumas of a manager and a leader

For TeamLeads, Project Managers Let’s digress from tasks, priorities and project management frameworks for a couple of minutes. A team lead or manager is, first of all, a human being. With his own strengths and with his own behavior and thinking. Suppose in childhood, parents would often say that the main thing is to be a good person, not to let others down, to help everyone, and only then can a human call himself a person. Please note, there is nothing wrong in the very message of helping people and being a good person, of course. But this model of[…]
