Do you want happy, healthy, and engaged teams that will bust through walls to get things done? Do you want to make hiring easier or fix retention issues? My name is Scott Drake. I'm a technology executive and consultant on a mission to help organizations build high-impact tech teams by creating great places for technologists to work.
Scott is a highly skilled strategic thinker and added a lot of value to our management team. He's a planner and a problem-solver. He made an impact on our entire company's culture.
One thing that Scott said that has stuck with me is "We get to decide if this is a great place to work or not." That statement encompassed Scott's leadership style and allowed the team to have autonomy and accountability.
Scott taught me how to be fierce, yet professional. He was never afraid to ask the hard questions or push back, while at the same time letting go so others could learn from experience.
Scott brings a pragmatic approach, vision, strategy, and energy. He knows how to build a strong team. He's an easy person to respect. He's a strong mentor. He's the kind of guy you enjoy working with and would gladly work with again.
Scott created a work environment that encouraged active discussion, idea sharing, personal advancement, and allowed each team member the freedom to shine in their role.
