Many people think leadership is a higher calling that exclusively resides in managers who practice or follow complex and compelling leadership philosophies. But what's critical for leadership is principled consistency, because small things done well build and respect within the team.Using stories from his time as a senior leader at Slack, Pinterest, and Apple, Michael presents a series of leadership practices that help you build leadership skills. You'll learn how to develop teams that are highly productive, highly respected, and highly trusted.
Using stories from his time as a senior leader at Slack, Pinterest, and Apple, Michael presents a series of leadership practices that help you build leadership skills. You'll learn how to develop teams that are highly productive, highly respected, and highly trusted.
In this practical book, Michael illustrates the leadership skills he learned from exceptional leaders at three dynamic companies:
- Act I: As a manager under James Barksdale at Netscape
- Act II: As a senior manager/director under Steve Jobs at Apple
- Act III: As an executive with Stewart Butterfield at Slack
Michael Lopp is a veteran Silicon Valley-based engineering leader who builds both people and product at historic companies such as Slack, Borland, Netscape, Palantir, Pinterest, and Apple. When he's not deeply worrying about staying relevant, he writes about backpacks, bridges, humans, and leadership at the popular weblog, Rands in Repose. He currently works at Apple. This is the way.
Michael has written three books. His first book "Managing Humans, 3rd Edition" is a popular guide to the art of engineering leadership and clearly explains that while you will be rewarded for what you build, you will only be successful because of your people. His second book "Being Geek" is a career handbook for geeks and nerds alike. Michael's third book, Small Things, Done Well, explains how focusing on the small parts of leadership is critical to becoming a better leader.Michael rides gravel bikes, wonders about semicolons, drinks red wine, and tries to understand how forests work amongst the redwoods of Northern California because curiosity is how you grow.
