Being brilliant at stats is really important, but it is not the only thing one must be good at. In this episode, I talk about my good and bad experiences and discuss what we can learn from them. I also discuss the following points:

What you must do if you are:

  • Not being understood
  • Working on irrelevant things
  • Getting into big arguments and losing them
  • Not being able to appropriately pushing back
  • Getting a bad reputation
  • Getting a bad rating
  • Becoming frustrated and unmotivated

The solution for many of these topics is becoming a better leader - not as a supervisor but as a leader without a title. So in summary, balance your investment into methodological skills with developing your leadership skills.
