A readme...for me.


Selected excerpts from https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/engineering/readmes/wayne-haber/

 

I’m a veteran of three successful startups and have experience in multiple areas including healthcare, finance, and security.

  • I subscribe to servant-leadership
  • Learning is very important to me. I read approximately one book a week and take one Udemy class a month.
  • I subscribe to the philosophy of “saying what you are going to do and doing what you say”.
  • I am an advocate of remote-work due to it being highly effective (on many levels) for both the company and for the individual.
  • At work, nothing makes me happier than when:
    • A user benefits from a change developed by my team
    • A prospect becomes a customer because of a feature developed by my team
    • A team member learns something new and expands their horizons
    • A process or procedure or technology is improved that benefits the overall company, team members, or the technology industry as a whole
  • I use this 1-1 format
  • I do skip-level meetings with those who work for my direct reports every 1 to 2 months.
  • I do an AMA (ask me anything) / office hours session with my team monthly. Anyone at the company is invited to attend if they are so inclined.
  • Some of my favorite business books include:
  • I am in Atlanta, GA, USA (Eastern US).
  • I am most productive in the morning.
  • I always try to explain the “why”. Engineers often leave that out and focus on the “what” and “how”.
