    Ep 17 - Neal Reizer - Leadership & Building Great Teams

    Ep 17 - Neal Reizer - Leadership & Building Great Teams

    In Episode 17, I was lucky enough to connect up with Neal Reizer.  Neal is an exceptional leader and someone I am thoroughly happy to have run into in my career.  He was my SVP of development for several years and opened the door for many opportunities.  Neal is one of a handful of leaders who is humble enough to admit he doesn't know everything, but exceptional enough to really put that statement to the test.  He and I chat about information dashboard design, leadership, building teams, and all those crazy things that go into developing software at scale.

    Information Dashboard Design was mentioned and is STILL a great text when it comes to putting the RIGHT information on the page.  It's on sale right now for $21 - use this link and support the channel: https://amzn.to/2XLdgOt

    Also, Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink is available at: https://amzn.to/2KfcaTf

    Thank you Neal for your time and investment in this channel and sharing your amazing mind with us.  

    I can't wait for our paths to cross again :)

    Ep 16 - Question the Business Value

    Ep 16 - Question the Business Value

    Video Version: https://youtu.be/j0E6SeGfGVc

    In this episode, I recap the last few episodes you may have missed before diving into one of the most valuable lessons I’d ever been taught by one of my mentors.  “Question the Business Value” is a simple concept, but often overlooked as we try to convince others that our way is “right”.

    Take a listen, then tell me what you think using the comment features.

    Thanks for listening!
