The biggest opportunity for today’s leaders is…To give up ‘driving results’ and to instead create the causes and conditions for high performance. Cultivate a working environment that promotes open communication, clear goals, transparent and consistent values, and a growth mindset.
Things that make me smile include…When people make new connections – new learning, awareness, catching on to a subtle joke.
What matters to me…Transparency. We can’t change what we cannot discuss.
I have worked as a software engineer and engineering leader for over 20 years. In that time I have been fortunate to work with many icon brands (Red Bull, Soylent, Riot Games to name a few). I was lucky to find folks who nurtured my interest and desire to grow. It has been my greatest joy to return that gift and to help folks as they develop in their careers.
