Picture of team fighting a fire

01

Creativity. Unique work requires skilled and restless people. Creative digital teams are made from eager idealists. PMs should be equally diligent in advocating creativity throughout their team and to every client.

02

Empathy. Worthwhile projects stir creative problem-solvers. Managing digital work is about advocating client needs while being your team's champion. Binding teammates to clear business purpose invites empathetic and innovative thinking.

03

Relationships. Great projects attract great people. Resourceful PMs are partners with their team rather than disconnected taskmasters. Effective teams are ferociously respectful of, and inherently motivated by, one another.


04

Contribution.

Great work comes from an engaged team with real investment and control over the final solution. PMs should help teammates discern where their efforts are most valuable.

I love work that chases individuality, orbits a clear purpose, inspires teammates, and actually benefits from my experience. By day, I work for eHouse Studio, a marketing and UX shop in sunny Charleston, SC.
