It is up to the product manager to understand when something is not quite right and to address it or to know when to let it go. It’s easy for team members to check out. They may not think the meeting your running is a valuable way to spend their time. Others may be distracted from the project for personal reasons. Product managers are expected to be able to walk into a meeting and gauge people — and not just read their emotions but react to them properly.
Your long-term success will be defined by the “systems thinkers” on the team. These are the folks that like to analyze things. They are bothered by unnecessary complexity and love to simplify. They are always looking for leverage (i.e. finding clever ways for seemingly small things that can have disproportionate impact over the long-term). They are pattern-seekers and puzzle solvers. Note: When I say “systems”, I don’t mean just technical systems -- and I”m not just referring to engineers here. This applies across every department and every discipline. Find and foster the folks that think in frameworks and flywheels.
