The SimpleLeadership Podcast (iTunes link) specifically focuses on improving the craft of software engineering leadership. As a VP of Engineering & CTO I am acutely aware of the lack of good resources available for new and existing software engineering managers. SimpleLeadership is designed for both new and experienced software & technology managers who want to build high-performing teams, better motivate & mentor their employees, reduce attrition and advance their career. It is for people who want to go beyond just being a manager and become a true leader. During these interviews I ask each guest to share their journey from individual contributor to software engineering manager and provide any guidance on the transition. I also like to focus each podcast on a specific theme related to the challenges of managing and leading software engineering teams & organizations.
