As you work with other people, you will experience resistance when you suggest changes and want to implement something new. Why is this?
One podcast listener shared an experience where a problem was occurring. The suggested a solution. The idea was rejected. No solution presented itself and the idea was submitted various times. When nothing else was working, the idea was finally implemented.
The suggested change successfully helped the situation. Victory!
Later, another issue arose and a similar suggestion was made. The expectation was the suggestion would be well received; however, this was not the case. The idea was still met with hostile resistance.
Have you faced a situation like this before? Why wasn't there an trust built because of the first recommendation?
Our conversation for today's episode centers around the idea of building trust on the teams you work with. As most our listeners are in the data platform space, we thought it would be a good idea to reach outside our community to folks we might receive the most pushback from--developers. We are happy to have Richard Campbell on the show with us today. Richard is the co-host of the .NET rocks podcast and you might recognize him from one of his many Channel9 videos.
We chat with Richard about how we can build trust and some common ways we attempt to show authority can backfire on us and actually cause more problems. We talk about some of the ways those we trust have gone about earning our trust. I know you enjoy this episode.
