Just say no
The surprising challenge of a growing team
When a team grows, it will face a very surprising challenge…
It needs to make sure it’s saying “no” enough.
Every new team member brings with them a lot of good ideas. Heck, that’s why they were hired. But, good ideas always come at a faster pace than your ability to execute on them.
Without saying no to good ideas on a regular basis, teams become overwhelmed and lose focus.
Determine your team’s main goal and stay ridiculously focused on achieving it. If there’s something that doesn’t get you closer to your goal, then just say no.
