James Giroux




This week, what’s inspiring James Giroux, founder of TeamWP.

A podcast worth listening to: 
HBR IdeaCast is a great leadership resource that gets me out of the WP bubble and into what the rest of the business world is thinking about.

A concept worth understanding: 
We're always wondering what's next in product innovation and the Jobs-to-be-Done Framework by Tony Ulwick is one of those tools to help WordPress plugin creators systematize innovation so they can keep delighting users with every release.

A Twitter account worth following: 
I'm a big fan of investing in culture and what James Laws is doing over at @Ciircles is really awesome. He's a WordPresser, too, so his context is what we're all navigating.

An article worth reading: 
Lately there have been a lot of articles written about the lived experience of people from underrepresented groups in WordPress. I highly recommend Michelle Frechette's article 5 Days Without A Shower to give you some insight into how others experience those memorable WordPress events we all love.

A habit worth forming: 
Recognition is one of those things that goes a long way. Taking time each week to celebrate the effort of someone in your team will encourage others to do likewise and have a transformational effect on your team dynamics.
