“Building Impact Through Essentialism“ - Erica Stanley, Engineering Manager, Salesloft
New and experienced engineering leaders can struggle with understanding how to drive impact on our teams. Whether we’re individual contributors or managers, the more we grow, the more responsibilities we collect. Inevitably, we find ourselves with more responsibilities than time or resources. We might fall into the trap of trying to get it all done—with our teams, personal productivity, and even our health possibly suffering in the process. Perhaps the way to build impact isn’t doing all the things, but doing the right things. This is essentialism in a nutshell. We’ll discuss ways essentialism can help us become better leaders and ensure our teams are working with clarity and purpose.
