A question and answer session with David Barton, CISO at Stellar Cyber
Hopefully as a leader, you realize sooner rather than later that being a good coach to your team is part of being a good manager.You can’t have one without the other.Our teams (generally very technical) are motivated by different things: some money, some public recognition, some promotion. Each person also learns differently and thrives under different management styles.It’s our job as a coach/mentor to understand these differences, embrace them, and then lead appropriately.
Two-way communication is essential for leaders and their teams.Team members want to feel like they have a say in the direction of the team and how that relates to the overall direction of the company. Without two-way communications, the communications feel dictatorial and not team oriented. While some don’t care or want to understand the big picture, team members want to know they make a difference.
