Really nice post Rafa, being assertive without being perceived a grinch is something I consider very valuable in management.

As a rule of thumb, I use "socratic questioning" with peers requests, "yes, and" is something I learned from a former manager when I was on consultancy companies. Last but not least, Engineering strategy is on my plate to explore next, starting from Will Larson's strategy notes.

Thank you, Samuel. I agree with you. It's critical to be assertive but without appear too aggressive. Glad to hear you're already familiar with those terms. Engineering strategy is something I've been exploring during the last months, and it's a game changer for experienced leaders.
