I’ve known plenty of people who’ve worked at Twitter over the years. Most have left by now. Usually out of frustration. And their stories aren’t mine to tell, so I won’t. But I’ll tell you this: a lot of those people have tried, honestly tried to deal with the abuse on the platform. But when leadership doesn’t want something fixed it’s close to impossible to fix it. And when leadership doesn’t see something as a problem, it’s not getting fixed at all.
One of the most valuable skills that I am learning at CIID is working in teams. I believe that the quality of a project is determined by the quality of the teamwork and not the quality of the idea. In order to contribute to an effective team collaboration, I’ve learned that teams need to set the quality bar at the beginning of the project and to make retrospectives a habit.
