So here’s the situation: You’re the design lead on a project, and someone on your team very passionately disagrees with you on a small detail. That detail happens to be one you care about, but probably won’t make a major impact on the project overall. What do you do?
Do it their way. Even if you think your solution is a little better. If it turns out to be a disaster you can always go back and change it. But by supporting your teammate where they’re passionate, you’ve given them that much more of a reason to stay invested in the project. And besides, you might be wrong, and the suggestion may turn out to be awesome.
