Why did we start Tech Leaders?
Tech Leaders helps software developers step into leadership roles by building their non-technical skills and business sense to make an even bigger impact with their technical expertise, without burning out or losing touch with the tech.
The Tech Leaders Mastermind was the program that Todd needed when he was making the leap from web developer to software engineer to engineering manager to CTO.
Todd and Stephen founded Tech Leaders after realizing they were solving the same problem from two different perspectives.
Todd was a senior software engineer who had to teach himself the leadership and business skills he needed to become an effective leader as his previous startup grew quickly.
He was frustrated that he had to learn things the hard way through trial and error by piecing together the information he needed from books, blogs and mentors.
Years later, after consulting as a Fractional CTO and working with talented engineers who built their careers with their strong technical skills, Todd realized the vast majority of developers lacked these non-technical skills required to make the leap into leadership.
When Stephen met Todd, Stephen had taught and mentored thought workers from many different industries on leadership, people and business skills for over twenty years.
Now more than ever, the world needs technical experts with strong leadership skills, and Tech Leaders was created to fill this need.
