daily standup

why

As a team we get together daily to share learnings, call out risk and ask for help. We do this:

High-performing teams have one thing in common: psychological safety, the belief that you won’t be punished when you make a mistake or “being able to show and employ one’s self without fear of negative consequences of self-image, status or career”

Psychological safety is important as it enables moderate risk-taking, speaking your mind, creativity, and sticking your neck out without fear of having it cut off — just the types of behavior that lead to market breakthroughs that are asked from this team.

TL;DR - Please overshare during standup. Be awesome to each other and if something’s not right please start a discussion with your 1-up.
