Welcome to the week! Here we are again with some tasty reading nuggets to see you through Monday - hope you enjoy them

Here at CTO Craft, we're working on providing support for tech leaders in two new ways: a completely online subscription, which gives you access to a private mentoring Slack group where you can chat with very experienced CTOs, and an offline subscription, which alongside the online offerings gives access to events, dinners and panels in your local area. These are coming together as we speak, but we'd love to hear from you if you have any thoughts for what would be most useful to you. Just hit "reply", and let us know!

Writing the Unspeakable (#75)

Write down what you can never ever say out loud

Do you suspect that unspoken taboos are holding back the team? Consider this silent activity: Stress confidentiality ('What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas') and announce that all notes of this activity will be destroyed in the end. Only afterwards hand out a piece of paper to each participant to write down the biggest unspoken taboo in the company. 
When everyone's done, they pass their paper to their left-hand neighbours. The neighbours read and may add comments. Papers are passed on and on until they return to their authors. One last read. Then all pages are ceremoniously shredded or (if you're outside) burned.

That's it!

If you know someone who'd benefit from receiving TMW, send them here: http://www.saccade.co/tech-manager-weekly.

Have an amazing week, and see you next Monday!
