Execute with high output and quality
Engineering is all about integrity. Integrity consists of quality, timeliness and efficiencies. Let’s focus our efforts on improving the integrity of our system over the next quarter.
Implement a new one-on-one program across engineering to foster better communication between managers and their direct reports
One-on-ones are a great opportunity to build trust, share feedback, and engage with each team member. They provide a dedicated time and place to discuss everything from roadblocks to career aspirations, let’s make them count.

Improve your management skills
Great managers keep their team engaged, high performing and retained. Even if you are already a great manager, there's always room for improvement. Let’s make a concerted effort to continue to listen, learn, and grow in our engineering management skills and foster a culture of sharing and actioning on feedback.
Operate as an anti-racist leader
As a leader with broad amounts of power and privilege, you need to do more than just not be a racist. You need to use your privilege to integrate anti-racism and allyship into the practices and processes of the engineering team you lead, as well as the organization's leadership team. Let's focus on removing systematic racism from our company and from society as much as our span of control will allow.
Build and lead a best-in-class engineering team
To build a world class product, we need to have a world class team. Let’s hit these key results and arm our middle-managers with the tools and knowledge they need to ensure we’re putting in the work to deliver on that promise.
