Welcome to the Unicorn Meta Zoo, a podcast by members of the Stack Exchange community team. If you want to avoid spoilers, jump straight to the audio.
We are talking about aspects of leadership in our communities.
- Abby’s definition of a leader reminds me of the Potter Stewart test.
- Joel’s book is Smart and Gets Things Done.
- We set up a Team just for our moderators to share their wisdom and knowledge.
- Our elections uses a single transferable vote system for taking your preferences into account.
“This is the no touching podcast.” This is certainly correct since none of us are even in the same state. If anyone ever asks you to explain a double entendre, change the subject immediately as every word out of your mouth will instantly take on an unintended sexual meaning.
My title really did change to Community Product Manager. It’s mostly ceremonial.
“Unfortunately, as you probably already know, people” could be a leadership motto. It’s tempting to blame folks for problems we have as Community Managers. On the other hand, we benefit from leaders empowering others to accomplish our goals. I am forever in their debt.
