"There are six core needs researchers find are most important for humans at work. Not all are equally important to everyone. You might find that equity and belonging are most important to you, but choice and status are most important to your employee. Getting to know them and coaching to them is a shortcut to making others feel understood and valued (aka inclusivity). "

A user manual for me
"There are lots of ways to build good teams and working relationships. I’m currently training as an organisation and relationship systems coach with ORSC and there are lots of methods that help build teams and collaborations which I will share more of as I do the training (I’ll be fully qualified in January 2018).

Three Paths in the Tech Industry: Founder, Executive, or Employee
When people ask me for tech career advice I find it helpful to lay out the three paths I’ve encountered most in my career: founder, executive, and employee. I wrote this post though because when I talk to people about their careers I’m surprised at how often they focus on only one of these paths without taking the time to consider other options.

On Being A Senior Engineer
"I think that there’s a lot of institutional knowledge in our field, especially about what makes for a productive engineer. But while there are a good deal of books in the management field about “expert” roles and responsibilities of non-technical individual contributors, I don’t see too many modern books or posts that might shed light directly on what makes for a good senior engineer."
