Leading a team is hard, don't go it alone!

Build Better Teams started because learning how to grow and lead an inspired software development team was very difficult and at times, extremely lonely for its creator, Calvin.  Leading without the tools, tactics, and skills to lead effectively left Calvin learning on the fly, something so many new leaders face today!  This approach leads to poor decision making, bad team experience, negative business impact, and personal career limitations when you're learning on the go. You learn a lot but it's not without consequences!

After spending the past decade learning how to lead anything from cross-functional Agile teams to large, 100+ person organizations with layers of complexity, Calvin created a place to help people be better leaders so that they can build better teams!

With Build Better Teams, you are no longer by yourself to figure out how to do the hard parts of leadership that no one tells you about. Instead, we are cultivating a community of leaders who aspire to master their leadership abilities, and help their team and business thrive by sharing stories, tools, and best practices to help them grow!
