Inspirational Women in STEM and Tech: “Always remember that everyone is motivated differently” with Jana Morrin of Speakfully

Always remember that everyone is motivated differently. Not everyone works the same as you do. You could be missing out on someone’s potential by not recognizing that early on.

  1. It’s ok to not know everything. Not only is it ok, but it’s ok to actually say that you don’t know it all too. When you can admit it and utilize the people around you, you’ll be more respected than pretending that you do.
  2. Be patient. When you’re in it day after day, it always feels like things should be moving quicker than they actually are, but in reality, it likely hasn’t been as long as it has felt.
  3. Take risks. Without taking risks, there won’t be any breakthroughs.
  4. Whether remote, distributed, or onsite teams, ensure that you have solid group communication in place. Don’t get lax on it, commit to always doing it.
