There is a way out of the weeds & I can guide your way.
I require every new manager that reports to me to sign up for Marcus's newsletter and often discuss it in staff meetings. Leadership with a capital "L" is a real part of the discipline I now bring to the coaching experience with my team.
I continue to work one-on-one with Marcus to this day, and I hope I will always be able to lean on him and dialog about challenges.
He is worth way more than you can ever pay him."
Andrew Coven, Director of Content Acquisition Engineering of Netflix
Oddly, I felt like I would be unable to put this new information and ideas into action, and would, therefore, feel worse about myself than before.
I found the opposite. Working with Marcus has been the best form of support I could ask for. He helps me question bad assumptions, brainstorm better solutions, and he's taught me how to manage people without screwing up.
I like the small group focus. I find that the focused attention helps dig deeper into troubling issues."
Jonathan Wold, CMO of XWP.com
