Pro Tip

For team/company/partner initiatives: impossible to get anything done successfully if people don't feel they've been heard throughout the process - even if you'll eventually make a decision or implement a process they don't like. For principals: no matter how closely you work together/how informal your relationship, important to maintain deference re: ultimate authority.
