A resilient manager is the foundation of every successful team. How do you become a more resilient manager? Today’s guest is here to show you how. Lara Hogan is the co-founder of Wherewithall, the former VP of Engineering at Kickstarter, and the former Engineering Director at Etsy. She’s also the author of two books: Resilient Management and Demystifying Public Speaking. In this episode, Lara does what she does best: management coaching. She provides Wes with some 1:1 coaching on his management style and uses the BICEPs framework to help him better understand resistance patterns he may see in his daily work. Listen in to hear the full conversation.

Wes’ Takeaways:
1. Take a 5-minute walk around the block.

3. Open my TODO list.
4. Open the #candidate-quotes slack channel and read happy feedback from our customer's candidates.
5. Open the #gratitude slack channel and write a short message about something I'm thankful for.
