Great inside view into engineering leadership
I wish I'd had this podcast when I was starting my career a decade ago. Even as an experienced engineer, I get tons of insight from listening to Jean's conversations. I also really appreciate how this series elevates voices from underrepresented groups.
A lot of favorites here
I listen to these while I exercise. Jean and her interviewees are all really accustomed at working in high-trust environments, and the episodes are riddled with the countless ways they support those environments on a day-to-day basis. Conversations are candid and very easy to listen to. Highly recommend!
I love the variety and quality of guests on Lead Time Chats. Always insightful and useful conversations for team leads.
