I try to adhere to what I call the "parking lot metric" which is a subjective assessment of how each person feels about their day-to-day on an engineering team. If they pull their car into the parking lot, how much do they feel like putting the car back in Reverse and driving away or do they feel good about the day they are about to have--can it be a good day? Is there even a chance for that? This mindset has helped me address root issues on teams fairly quickly so meaningful cultures can be layered on.
