1. Spend more time learning and understanding the problems even over the technology. You do this by getting to know the people that will use and be impacted by the technology.
2. Develop and own a healthy sense of curiosity. It is important to look for and build the muscles of agility and resiliency. Look around at the adjacent skills needed for you to always be learning and growing.
3. Know why you have a seat at the table. We all bring a unique perspective and value to every meeting and interaction. What is yours? When you are able to answer that question, you will be able to become much more effective in your communications.
