Kicking off the Async AMAs at Lead Dev

Hey everyone, I’m excited to share that The Lead Dev chose my 2018 talk on 1:1s as the focus for their first in a new series of AMAs with past speakers!

Why an AMA? As we all grapple with the new reality that is a post-COVID world, Lead Dev is thoughtfully adjusting the way they deliver programming to support their huge audience of tech leads, engineering managers, and CTOs. The Asynchronous AMA is a new way to bring us together. Each week Lead Dev shares a conference talk video from one of their speakers and then organizes an AMA on Slack.

Join us! Each week:

  1. Watch the featured video. This week, it’s me! Watch on Youtube: The team-changing magic of 1:1s – Adrienne Lowe | The Lead Developer Austin 2018
  2. Ask your questions and share your own experiences in the Lead Dev Slack #asynchronous-ama channel
  3. Join us on the designated day when the speaker will drop-in throughout the day to answer questions

You’ll need to be part of the Lead Dev Slack community to participate. Join us by clicking here.

Watch my talk to learn the ins and outs of effective 1:1s and how to evaluate if they are going well—or off the rails. Come hear a case story of how one organization started doing 1:1s and how the practice (spoiler alert) had a positive impact on patches and release dates for important and valuable features.

And, of course, learn why I used this image…

Hope to see you there! If you can’t make it, no sweat–I’ll follow up with another post recapping how it went.
