Personal Story
Once at a previous company, some of the managers were developing a product, but progress was hampered by the fact that they wanted to kill each other. I researched the problem so I could speak to their issues with the code, so that I could empathize with them as project manager outside of my role as a "mere business product stakeholder.”
Self Assessment
8 - I feel like more than just "a pair of eyes" when I walk into a space, monitoring people's needs and feelings, and I endeavor to speak clearly and add to the "conversation in the room.”
