“That ability to be humble, as a tech leader, whether you’ve been-there-done-that or you’re emerging, I think is very important. It’s good to know exactly what you’re good at and what you bring to the table.”Mike Burgett via Net Effects Podcast

Think about getting to know someone first personally, what makes them tick? What’s important? How old are their kids? Where do they live? What are their favorite sports teams? Because then you can relate, and then once you can relate you can break down those barriers.Mike Burgett via Net Effects Podcast
