About This Show
(New episode every week, on Thursdays) The original podcast by & for Startup managers & CTOs; because your CS degree didn't teach you to lead.
As software engineers with computer science backgrounds and lots of experience with OO design, version control, and web technologies, we spend a lot of time thinking about web technologies. But not a lot about how to lead the people that use those technologies. Join us as we dive into the black arts of people management, hiring, recruiting, retainment, and startup management and startup leadership
Some of our favorite topics: #coding #hiring #retainment #networking #management #agile #productivity #growthhacking.

Great entrepeneurs consistently put themselves in a place where they’re uncomfortable.
How can I put my team in a place where they’re comfortable being uncomfortable?
I really believe in building trust within an organization. We each have career goals & aspirations. We all deserve to be challenged to grow on a daily basis.
We’re all mentors and we can all bring out the best in each other.
I believe in respect & inclusion. Everyone has ideas, it’s really important to listen, everyone should be able to give input.
Leave everything better than you found it.
