"A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business." -Henry Ford
When I think about tech companies, I automatically envision a working environment that has bean bag chairs, ping pong tables, and free snacks in the break room (the last one is especially appealing to me since I love snacks). That is the picture that the media portrays and, although there may be some truth in it, it's not all like that.
On this episode, I had the great pleasure to talk with Chad Pytel, CEO of the tech company, ThoughtBot. Chad is a different kind of leader and his company is a different kind of company. We talk about the cultural dynamics of ThoughtBot, his journey as a leader, and how having fun at work is great but so is working to get things done....and how those two things can come together.
I had a great time talking with him. His organization and story is unlike any I've heard and I know you'll get a lot from this interview.
More on Chad....
