How to Put People First: A Talk on Team Craftsmanship with Gregg Pollack
As Code School grew from a team of 10 to 50, Gregg learned a great deal as a leader, often the hard way. He began to understand what it truly means to put people first in business, and how to craft effective teams. In this talk Gregg will tell some stories and share 22 principles which anyone can apply in their own team to be more effective, and thus more successful.
Gregg is passionate about creating amazing places for people to work, teaching software development online, and fostering self-awareness. Most recently he is the host of Open SourceCraft, a show about the people who are passionate about Open Source Software. He also founded Code School, an online software programming school which was acquired by Pluralsight, Envy, a web application development firm, and Starter Studio, Orlando’s first technical accelerator now in it’s seventh class. He lives in downtown Orlando where he parents two children, writes on this blog when the mood strikes him, and helps build the tech and startup community in the region.
