🍊 Loneliness Survey, Dev Experience, Psych Safety, Meeting Summaries, Civility, Feedback Loops: TMW #215 by CTO Craft

Hello again!
In the wake of Mental Health Awareness Week here in the UK last week, we got to thinking about the effects of loneliness in engineering leadership - it’s a topic that comes up invariably commonly in the coaching work we do with CTOs, especially with first-time leaders moving from individual contribution or being embedded within a development team. Along with the enforced remoteness we’ve all had to adjust to over the last 14 months or so, sitting at the interface between the commercial and technical parts of a company is a lonely place to be.
To that end, we’re going to be looking at ways CTO Craft can do more to help with leader loneliness - in order to do that in the best way, we’ve created a completely anonymous survey to learn more about how loneliness affects CTOs and other technology leaders.
It’s short, no more than 5 minutes out of your day - we’d really appreciate your views, and it’s 100% private and secure, just between you and us. If you have any questions, drop me a line by replying to this email - the link to the survey is below
Until next time
Andy @ CTO Craft
