Helping, Power, and Product Management

Mon, Mar 16, 20

I’m about halfway thru reading Helping, by Ed Schein. It’s a bit dry, but a thought provoking read - it’s about the power dynamics inherent in helping relationships, and the team dynamics that emerge from good, strong professional helping relationships.
