Be Openly Confused

Jennifer Tran
(she/her) | engineer who loves the history of computing and occasionally illustrates
・1 min read

Fostering a culture in your software engineering team where people can share openly that they are confused is productive.

Sharing when you are confused provides an opportunity for:

  • team bonding
  • knowledge sharing
  • clarification of potential ambiguity
  • transparency

Others on your team might be confused too but may not feel confident enough to share it. Value vulnerability and truth over comfort and the guise of understanding because the team will benefit as a whole.
