Power Up: Three Ways to Increase Your Product Leadership Power
Your first power source is your ability to influence others based on your personality and interpersonal skills. It’s the capability you can immediately boost simply by being a decent person. To do so, cultivate qualities like compassion, courage, truthfulness, patience, and humility. This will earn you the respect and trust of your co-workers and at the same time, it will make you a happier person. How cool is that?
Stating a list of wholesome qualities is easy, of course. But putting them into practice when faced with tight deadlines, ambitious goals, or difficult individuals is hard. It’s all too tempting to fall back onto less skillful habits and become impatient, tense and stressed, say something we regret afterward, or pass on the pressure to the development team.
