Ben Aston:
The DPM Podcast welcomes you to the show. We go beyond theory to offer practical advice for leading better digital projects. Thank you for listening. I’m Ben Aston. Projects rarely go according to plan. And when plans change, it can often lead to a lot of stress. There are many things to do: schedule meetings, update plans, adjust estimates, make changes and make calls. What if there was a better way to manage the change in your projects? This podcast will show you a new way to approach managing change using agile contracts. Keep listening to learn how to make agile contracts work for you and the challenges and benefits of this approach.
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka is my guest today. He is the Director for Product Management at product managers and really helps them grow and develop. He is also responsible for, sort of, developing their best practices. Hello, Tucker.
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
Good morning Ben.
Ben Aston:
Yes, you too. One of the things I wanted to ask you is this: I know that part of your job is the development of the team. I was wondering if you could share some of your insights about what has worked for your team in helping them grow and evolve. Perhaps it’s about the contracting you are using or experimenting with. How do you nurture your team and help them grow? What has worked for you?
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
Yeah. The one thing you need to realize early on is that everyone learns differently and needs different coaching methods. I begin by evaluating their performance with my team members. What do they learn? How do they like feedback? What do they enjoy receiving praise? I keep track of everything so I can tailor my approach to get them to respond better. It’s true. I spend a lot time in my one-on-one sessions. I enjoy discussing different topics with them and helping them to grow. I mean, coaching them on any issue that they are having at the moment. They’ll just come up as they come up and then we move on. We also have a book study at Crema, centered around Multipliers.
This is a huge aspect of our team’s growth. Conferences are another important aspect of growth. We have a conference in the works.
