The team meet

No, I didn't need crowd control! 
There I was: facing a sea of faces, all looking at me with hostility and agression in their eyes. Well, that is putting it VERY over the top. There were only 10 faces and they were all kind colleagues who had come to listen to me, since I am their team leader. There could have been several more, but work and other things had come in the way. But these ten had shown up and were willing to listen. 

So, I talked about the new routes. I talked about damages, how to control them, how to report them. I talked a bit about our goals within the team and the company. We ate pizza. I got everything across I wanted to get across. There were questions when something wasn't quite understood. 

An hour and a half after starting, the meet was over. I think I did okay.

    1. Thank you! It still feels quite alien and strange, but I am getting the hang of it now.

  4. If you have pizza at every meeting, I think they'll like you no matter what you say! ;)
