Hello again, welcome to the week!
This week’s Bytes session will be with the brilliant Suzan Bond, who coaches leaders around the world - she’ll be chatting with us on Thursday at 6pm UK time about ways to support brand new leaders - worth watching if you’re promoting ICs into leadership and management positions, or if you’re about to make the leap yourself. Don’t worry if you can’t make it - all Bytes sessions are recorded and available on Crowdcast immediately afterwards:
After CTO Craft Con a couple of weeks ago, several attendees reached out having watched the sessions on the final day, which was focused on Burnout and Stress; it’s been a horrific time in our industry, pressures are high, trust is low, good talent is scarce and expensive, and even though we’re almost two years in, working fully or partly remotely still isn’t settled and natural for many of us. I’ll be meeting some of those that reached out this week for a chat.
If you’re struggling at the moment, reach out to me, either on Slack or by replying to this email; I’m happy to help if I can
Until next week!
Andy @ CTO Craft
