Suppose the following:
You are managing a research and development team at a mid-sized software company. Your team is working on a new long term project that is critical to the future of your team, to your boss’s success, and to the future viability of the company. Your boss, who is your mentor and a brilliant engineer, has worked hard for months to develop the next steps for the design of the project. However, you personally disagree with her plan and think the project should go in a very different direction, and this is not the first time you have felt this way.
How would you respond to your boss?
