Are you a team newbie or part of the old guard?
Is it possible to be both at the same time?
- Newbies: These have many fresh new ideas, but have knowledge gaps due to inexperience.
- Old Guard:These know the ropes, but risk being unable to see beyond them.
- Combined, “New Guard”: These have the wisdom that comes with experience, while actively nurturing and maintaining a fresh, “newbie” perspective.
How could you–and your teammates–aspire to be the team’s New Guard?
