5 principles of effective communication with a team-lead

  1. Try to make your work more clear. So that the supervisor doesn't have to come to you asking, "What's up?" Proactively provide the current status of the task. Especially if it's on fire.
  2. If you don't know what decision to make, don't just come to the team-lead with a question. Come with a solution to your issue. If one option is not enough, offer more than one option. But one is better. Perfectly, the answer to your question should be: "Okay." 3 If you can do something yourself and you don't need the team-lead’s approval, do it yourself.
  3. Prepare a list of questions for the meeting. So that you can go through them all at once.
  4. In your messages ask one question at a time. It's difficult to answer to a big list all at once. When you come in with a small question for a minute, you reduce friction.
