What is most important to me is always the team. The complexity of IT projects of today go beyond the knownledge of a single person. Having a trustful and loyal relationship towards the team helps to get the most out of everyone and keeps the team together in the hard times of a project.
Since we are all human and no one is perfect, nor am I; I greatly respect other team members, their opinion and the feedback they provide. As a mediator it is my special interest to keep the team together and focussed on the challenges ahead.
Especially on international teams I feel like being providing an advantage to the team and the project. There is so much to achieve if the team works together. In the end the success of the team is to have achieved time and budget together and to see the own contribution to the company's revenue.
