They were working on a new project.
Her job was to create the schedule and plan for it.
She was struggling with the project management tools, and that was impacting the start date. The team got anxious, afraid her struggles would delay the project so much that the deadline wouldn’t be met.
When she finally figured the tools out and went over to share the plan with the team, she was surprised to see the project was finished already… Before even beginning!
She threw the plans away and celebrated their on-time delivery.
She couldn’t have asked for a better team!

Although I’m sure I’ll be a much better manager than the lady on my story.
