Protect the team from overcommitting and scope creep

When you work within the OKR framework, everything is a stretch goal. In situations like this, itโ€™s easy to want to overcommit so that you can hit 100% of the goal (when in reality, 70% is the goal). Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s important for us to ensure that the team isnโ€™t overcommitting to work, that we tackle scope creep problems as they come up, and that we prevent burnout on the team.

Operate as an anti-racist leader

As a leader with broad amounts of power and privilege, you need to do more than just not be a racist. You need to use your privilege to integrate anti-racism and allyship into the practices and processes of the engineering team you lead, as well as the organization's leadership team. Let's focus on removing systematic racism from our company and from society as much as our span of control will allow.
