Recently, I was in a metropolitan airport bathroom and the Black woman standing next to me couldn’t get any soap out of the automatic soap dispenser. Turns out the sensor couldn’t detect darker skin tones.
I’m sorry. Did I miss something – or are we still living in the age of Atari?
This brief & horrifying story affirms my belief that the world is ready for a new style of engineering leadership - one that works for all.
In my work, I show engineering leaders how to get more great work out of their teams while radically increasing their happiness and innovative ideation.
I’ll show you how to blend technical excellence with an inclusive, empathetic leadership style that will accelerate your career, codify your team, and amplify your impact.
Develop products that work for more diverse populations by leveraging the diversity of the engineering team itself
Build a culture of psychological safety where more ideas are shared and creative tension brings forth more innovation
Uncover unfair business practices that are causing discontent and turnover among top performers
Elevate motivation, morale, and productivity, as team members feel heard, understood, and technically challenged
Create team synergy and cohesion, resulting in greater loyalty and higher levels of happiness and engagement
Build on a foundation of trust, so you can offer more direct, helpful feedback to up-level the quality of each person’s work
