Join me for the weekly [free] Tech Leader Power Lunch

We'll spend 30 minutes working ON your career, and focusing on what you want in your career and ultimately for your life.

 

One of the biggest mistakes tech leaders make is focusing ALL their time on their day-to-day and neglecting their career and the big picture of what they really want and how they'll achieve it.

Don't let this be you too.
