Jody is an experienced technology leader who says companies can move past the traditional organizational structure that suggests the ideal number of direct reports. In fact, he believes leaders can manage up to 20 direct reports while creating an engaging and fun culture that attracts high-performers. How you ask? By making sure leaders do what they’re supposed to do best….lead. And that means letting go of micro-management tendencies so they can focus on these 5 things:
- Build autonomous teams
- Create collaborative and psychologically safe environments
- Stop making all the decisions
- Hire the right people to do the right things
