How do you debug an organization and find the right frameworks to keep running successfully? Maybe you need to focus on specific items to bring change, or maybe you need to experiment with different approaches and frameworks to find the answers?
In this episode, Jenny speaks with Mathias Mayer, an engineer turned founder, former CEO at Travis CI, and CTO at Reaction Commerce. He worked both on the organization and himself to become an empathic leader with a servant and a growth mindset. He explains how he approached problem-solving with his team at Reaction Commerce, plus when to track and not to track key organizational metrics.
Listen in to learn the importance of getting qualitative feedback from your customers than the quantitative feedback you only get from tracking metrics. You will also learn how to be curious and patient to better transition into a management role as an engineer.
“As a manager, your goal should be consistency, and you can’t have consistency if you don’t write stuff down.” — Mathias [50:20]
Mathias is an executive leadership coach and advisor to founders and CTOs. He started his career as an engineer who was mostly good at debugging and fixing production code and keeping things up and running. Over the years as an engineer, he also built up an interest in company culture, organization behaviours and psychology, and what it means to build companies where great products come first and foremost from people who are nurtured, supported, and able to contribute broadly.
