In this episode we sit down with Noor van Boven, investor, global people executive, and co-founder at Invested. She has worked and led people teams at Soundcloud, N26, and Deloitte, and is also a board member to numerous startups. With Noor, we reflect on high-context culture and how to design a context for your team to perform autonomously at their highest level. Plus, she told us her strategy for setting expectations and has some great advice for giving feedback in a way that helps your team learn and thrive.
In this episode you’ll learn:
How to set “guard rails” so that your team can operate with autonomy, which leads to more efficiency and less confusion.
The best way to frame feedback so you can support your report’s perspective while staying realistic about the solution and what can and can’t be changed.
How to define and align with your organization’s cultural dynamics, so that you and your team can have the strongest impact.
We really benefited from hearing Noor’s expert perspective on keeping goals crystal clear and realistic, balanced with her advice to be kind, do your best, and learn from your mistakes. We hope this inspires you too!
