I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

"Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality." -Warren G. Bennis

How are things in your state?  Are you running the streets (like Mel Gibson in Braveheart) screaming, "FREEDOM!"?  That's kind of been the feel here where I live....not by me but by many.  Regardless of where you are, we here in the studio hope you are healthy and well.

On this episode, I had the awesome opportunity to talk with Greg Thomas about his new book, "Code Your Way Up."  It's not a book (or a conversation) just for coders.  Greg has leadership tips that can be used by all in their quest to lead better and do better for their teams.  One key thing he said to me in our conversation was to "follow your non-leadership style."  What's that about?  Take a listen and find out....that's why I titled the episode the way I did.

CHEERS!

More on Greg...

Greg Thomas has seen (and done) it all – whether it’s been writing code, leading projects, breaking builds or developing and launching products – all while amassing an impressive wealth of experience as a team leader.

In Code Your Way Up, Greg asks (and answers) the important questions facing leaders in the software industry that don’t get asked enough (or at all) in identifying what it takes to be a great software leader and what to do when things go sideways.

If you’re new to software leadership or it’s something you aspire to, Code Your Way Up breaks it all down for you, pointing out the pitfalls and the joys, and providing you with a blueprint for excellence and success.  It’s the perfect balance of information and inspiration, imparted with humor, empathy, and clarity and it starts with taking the same approach to leading as you do to coding – jumping in.
