Episode Summary

In our chat with Ben Hale, Sr. Vice President Engineering, GTL, we discuss something that is essentially changing how we view workplaces: skilled teams. Ben talks about what makes companies and startup communities thrive and how to improve collaboration in these rapidly evolving, complex environments.

Key Takeaways

  1. A shared understanding of what the company growth objectives are is very important for team cohesion and excitement and understanding of how all team members can contribute to these goals
  2. Being agile is a mindset and only through experimentation and hypothesis testing can we know what the next steps would be
  3. Empathy is a cornerstone to building the relationship with your team and without that really strong relationship, collective creativity might be missed out on
  4. A good manager is one that realizes diversity to be an asset and builds upon that learning
