In order to grow a team that does its best work, I believe in combining the skills the business needs with what people naturally bring to the table. What excites me most about being a manager is getting to know everyone's strengths and areas of improvement so that I can find the right opportunities for folks to grow. Through weekly 1:1s, feedback and career development conversations and goal-setting. My team is spread across London, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam. Recently, an engineer joined my team, which particularly excites me.

Through hands-on work and conversations with people across disciplines, I adapt & innovate the toolbox of design activities to develop products people love. New ideas emerge in a lean way by experimenting & learning. Folks turn to me when they have a practice question or want to talk shop. It makes me smile every single time. I share what I learn through articles, talks and workshops.

In order to excel in delivering amazing software, the way we work together and the way we lead needs to fundamentally change. Through a highly collaborative approach based on Lean Startup and Design Thinking, I help teams and their leaders change the way they work. High performing, independent and balanced teams are key to this success. They need a psychologically safe space that allows them to experiment & take risks. They need to be able to make evidence-based decisions, grounded in user research. Amazing products are the outcome of human change.

In that sense, I’m a matchmaker. Together with the sales team, I seek to understand the toughest business challenges of our clients and how our team can help solve them through software. I see many parallels to conducting user research: active listening & building empathy for challenges always form the first step. Facilitating discovery workshops and telling the Tanzu Labs story in a tailored conversation are the foundations of that work.
