Hello! I'm Michael Faas and I am a technology leadership consultant.
I help information technologists at all levels develop emotional intelligence, or EQ, necessary to not only lead but thrive in an
ever changing workforce so they can find opportunities to lead and follow both up and down the chain of command.
If you are anything like me, you've been through manager after manager, organization after organization, which had absolutely poor leadership. Managers who hover. Directors who take credit for everything.
Have you ever had difficulty explaining your ideas to leadership? To your direct reports?
I've been there. And I have come out the other side even better having gone through it.
I am a Director of Information Technology and pride myself on building teams of technologists who feel free to express their ideas, no matter their level or rank in the company.
I build teams that grow by Idea Meritocracies.
This struggle is why I started this blog. I want to help people learn principles and theories to help people who want to lead their teams, both up and down the chain of command. I'll provide weekly posts spanning topics on leadership and technology.
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you! You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach me at any of the methods on the left.
