Over the years I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with some really good project teams. I have always been impressed by how well people can work in a project team if you respect them and let them get on with it.
The wise project manager settles for good work and lets the team have the floor. He does not try and take the credit for what happens, he lets the team take the credit as they have done the work.
Care about other peoples’ approval,
And you will be their prisoner.
Retire when the work is done.
This is the way to serenity.
