New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.

AKA stakeholder management. Sorry about the learning lesson.

By the way, nothing bad happened. Learned this by running an experiment where I let a less important deliverable run on its own and then presented a final product and a more important deliverable where leaders involved step by step. World of a difference

That’s a good lesson. People like stuff they’re familiar with (on many levels). A familiar deliverable will always be better received than an unfamiliar one, even if the unfamiliar one is of better quality.

Honestly, to an extent I treat my leadership similar to how I treat my clients. I see them as ‘client 0.1’. And huge part of that is taking them for the ride. Kudos to you for running a controlled experiment and proving it empirically 😂

This is on point. I agree

Client leadership?

That sucks and is a hard lesson
