Do you remember PAW Patrol and ten-year-old Ryder, a tech-savvy boy leading rescue missions?
He looks like an ideal team leader for software development or QA projects. Ryder has all the necessary characteristics for that role, including confidence, determination, courage, charisma, and positive thinking. The team he heads is well-trained and highly motivated to work with pleasure.
Ryder delves into new challenges, decomposes tasks, and delegates them based on the skills of each member. Treating his colleagues as professionals in the field, he relies on their choice of ways and tools to achieve the desired results. Besides, he is an empathetic leader who takes responsibility if the team fails and motivates and encourages colleagues when they succeed.
He uses a well-built system to manage the team, and if you compare his PAW team with a real-life engineering one, you may see that his approach focuses on eliminating overtime and financial losses.
