“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities” - Stephen R. Covey
Like most of you, I've been on a lot of teams. I've been on big teams, small teams, teams that have done very little and teams that have done a lot! Teamwork might make the dream work but, this is a fact...a lack of teamwork is a nightmare!
On this episode I had the great privilege to talk with the CEO of Woven and the former CIO at Facebook, Tim Campos. Tim is as down to earth as leaders get and he shares his experiences on how to build a great team and how to leverage culture in getting it to run at its optimum. It was a fascinating conversation. Not just about the Facebook stuff but about real strategies from a leader who has actually been in the trenches. I know you'll get as much from it as I did.
More on Tim...
As the former Chief Information Officer at Facebook, Tim Campos doubled overall productivity to $1.8 million per employee - making it the most productive company in the world. Now, as CEO of Woven, he's taking those lessons to reimagine how people use their calendar, so they can spend time on what matters most to them.
Two weeks after Tim started as CIO of Facebook in 2010, Mark Zuckerberg summoned him to his office for an urgent meeting. Once there, he met with Zuckerberg’s Executive Assistant, who lambasted the company’s internal calendar app and urged Tim to fix it. From that moment, Tim set to work designing creative tools that would help Facebook employees easily find optimal times and places to meet. It was so successful that it helped Tim double Facebook’s productivity from $900,000 to $1.8 million per employee over his tenure — five times more than most tech companies.
Tim’s experience managing productivity for the entire Facebook workforce helped him realize that traditional calendars are broken. In 2016, he left Facebook to co-found Woven, an intelligent calendar that helps busy professionals maximize their most valuable asset - time.
