A Newsletter for Managers and Team Leads

One of us uses computers.

Hello there! 👋

I'm Henry Poydar, founder of Status Hero. I've been writing software and leading both co-located and remote software teams for more than two decades.

Over these 20+ years, I've learned a lot about team communication, software estimation, aligning stakeholders, and managing people — mostly the hard way.

But one thing has always been clear to me: the best performing teams stay calm and focused, even when everyone is working remotely. In spite of the pings from tools, apps, and notifications constantly vying for their attention, these teams stay on-target.

If you're interested in learning the strategies and tactics they use to bring calm and focus to your team, this is the newsletter for you.

Subscribers get curated articles, tips, and links to support your efforts leading a modern, productive digital team every week or two.

Rest assured, this is a private mailing list. Your name and email address will never be shared with any other entity. Every email to you will have an instant unsubscribe link.
