As a producer, your job revolves around expectations: setting them, managing them, and meeting them. It sounds straightforward, until you start to factor in how the individual members of your team may respond to those expectations. Some will be great at meeting deadlines on their own, while others may require more hand-holding and accountability. Some will be able to set effective boundaries, while others may take on too much, predisposing them to burnout. Some will happily carry out tasks as instructed, while others may need to understand the reasoning behind the task. And, of course, some need to do things their way, or not at all. In other words, there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution to ensure the individual members of your team are meeting deadlines, fulfilling expectations, doing great work and achieving their own goals as well as those of the project.
