Directorship #3: A Need to Be Selfish

When it comes to looking after people on the team, what you need to put first is yourself. I learnt this the hard way by trying to help everyone else, no matter the expense to myself, and it almost lead to me leaving the team. Luckily this was a while ago, and I knew when I took over the team that if I was not able to look after myself I would not be able to help others. This does not mean you should leave other people hanging or not help anyone, but when it comes down to it you should not compromise your own health and basic needs. This sounds obvious but it can be very easy to justify just one more late night to help reduce someone’s workload and keep doing this every day. 

Directorship #2: The dynamic, fixed schedule

In the long-term, it is important to present a fixed plan. With so many people working on different personal schedules in the team and being able to commit different amounts of time through the year, it is best to present a few very clear external deadlines well in advance and then break this down into more manageable internal deadlines.
