Why should You get a coach?
The air in tech management can get really thin, especially if you are surrounded by non-technical people. You are faced with non-technical challenges on a daily basis. This is not a bad thing. It, however, adds some challenges to your job on which you can grow. Wouldn't it be great to have someone who lived through similar times? This is where I am happy to help.
While mentoring is wide-spread in sports and among executives of top 500 companies, it is not that common in SMEs and start-ups. My mission is to change that by supercharging the power of startup CTOs and technical leaders.
I currently work with CTOs from various industries and multiple time zones, including Europe, America, and Africa.
Don't Believe Me, Believe My Customers
I had the pleasure of working with Sebastian as my CTO coach, and I can confidently say that he is an invaluable asset to anyone looking to improve their leadership skills in a technology organization. Sebastian has an incredible ability to listen and provide thoughtful feedback that is tailored to your specific challenges.
During our coaching sessions, Sebastian provided me with valuable advice and validation of my thinking around management challenges, team structuring, and day-to-day work. His insights were always spot-on and helped me to better navigate complex situations with my team. Additionally, his guidance was always grounded in real-world experience, which made it all the more actionable and valuable.
Overall, I would highly recommend Sebastian to anyone looking to improve their leadership skills in a technology organization. His expertise, experience, and ability to tailor his coaching to your specific needs make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking to grow in their role.
The CTO coaching with Sebastian was very valuable for me. He's a "been-there-done-that" guy you can talk to about issues you face in your position as a technical leader. We worked a lot together on team topologies, but also discussed detailed technical issues. He also provided personal insights and tried to take care of your personal well-being and growth during the sessions. I highly recommend working with him.
Sebastian is a great CTO and mentor. He is able to unite product and dev to achieve its best. By constantly improving agile work process he creates an atmosphere of real innovation. He has the ability to break down complex matters to make them understandable for everybody. It was great working together with him and I owe him a lot. Would love to work with him again in the future.
In our weekly sessions, we will work on a wide range of different topics and challenges.
We will discuss all issues and questions that you would collect during the week, always focussing on the whole company, not only Engineering. The topics could include, but are not limited to:
Technology and Architecture
During our first sessions, we will determine where you want to develop yourself. This will become our guiding light. After all, coaching is also a mindset change and it i about you. I will constantly suggest articles and literature for direction. Reaching your personal goals is key to satisfaction and therefore key to high performance.
Your team is never static, it grows and has a dynamic of its own. We will work on keeping your team motivated, fostering ownership and accountability among its members. Keep in mind that you are managing developers and they deserve to be developed.
Become a multiplier
Your job is to build a high-performing team. You will achieve this by becoming a high performer yourself. Your performance multiplies by the number of members of your team.
There is not 'I' in team - but there is in 'win'.
