Hello again! 😀
One of last week’s Mentoring Circles conversations focused on the perception of the engineering function within the organisation, building trust and transparency, and the pattern many of us have experienced of engineering being seen to exist in a separate culture from the rest of the organisation. We discussed ways of avoiding the appearance of opacity, storytelling, aligning on business and technology values and missions, and showing vulnerability.
Given that it looks like we’ll all be working at least partly remotely for some time yet, getting all of this right without sharing physical space with non-engineering teams makes it all the harder,
If you’ve experience any of these symptoms, drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you - how did you remove some of the layers between tech and non-tech, and how did you build trust with non-engineers?
There are still spaces in the next Canada / US Mentoring Circle, which will start in June - drop us a reply if you’d like to chat about it!
This week’s CTO Craft Bytes will be a fireside with the amazing Vicky Wills, CTO at Zego, an insure-tech startup in the UK which is currently scaling very rapidly. Vicky will be discussing how to onboard new hires effectively, so if you have any questions or experiences to share, drop in! The link is below
Until next time
