Five Questions & Answers

My blueprint - three tips for working with me

1.
Say What You Think

I’m an evangelist for open discussions built on shared goals and good faith. Let’s talk it out, especially if you disagree or have criticism to share.

2.
Collaboration, Not Necessarily Consensus

I believe the best leaders are collaborative but don’t necessarily seek consensus. Great products are born from tough decisions that won’t necessarily be shared by all stakeholders in the moment.

3.
A Decision Is Often Better Than No Decision

Speed matters. Create a culture of informed decision-making, where the right people are empowered with data and authority. If you focus on quality of process, you’ll increase both the quality and velocity of your decision-making as a startup.
