Description: Whatever stage of growth your content team is at, it's common to feel overwhelmed with requests, demands, shadow tasks and poor collaboration with partners.
Welcome to a fast and furious overview of my personal approach to (re)setting expectations, getting advocacy and sponsorship from leadership, and prepping your writers for saying yes by saying no first.

- how to dig through layers of assumptions and “that’s how it’s always been”
- how just enough documentation, research and vision will carry you a long way
- how to deal with the toll of saying no and how to keep people on your side while you say it
