    A very unique environment you have created. Are you having success finding those who understand the role of leader versus manager? I’ve encountered so many through the years who don’t understand that respect is earned. Nor do they comprehend that someone following their instructions due to the ‘authority’ granted their title is not the same as leading.

    • No success yet. Yes, it’s hard to find the right fit.

      • Hilary says:

        One thing that keeps comes to mind after reading this is that while the personality, attitude, and interpersonal skills needed for the role are very clear; I don’t get a good feel for what technical knowledge is needed. I can’t tell if you’re seeking a generalist such as myself or a strong developer who understands how to interact with their clients to learn and anticipate their needs.

  2. It’s not clearly defined because we care more about the personality and culture fit.

    • Hilary says:

      That’s the answer I kept coming back to, but I wanted to verify that I was correct. I like that you’re not limiting the pool of candidates based upon the technologies that you currently employ. Different technologies lead to different ways thinking about solutions, something that many organizations are not comfortable with as you well know.

      Thank you,
      Hilary
