We all work in teams.
Teams imply collaboration
Collaboration implies more than one person responsible for execution.
A challenge creeps into this cooperative approach, this division of labor, even when those in the team execute according to expectations. Their execution and vision isn’t the same as yours. It’s of a different quality. The writing – the messaging you’re trying to craft- obviously came from a committee. The audience can see this. It impacts the presentation of ideas.
How far can you push before the whole project crumbles? Do you let go and face the audience knowing it isn’t the best? Do you go all Steve-Jobs-it-must-be-insanely-great on the team?
