My evolving perspective on leadership as a software developer

Recent conversations with the cofounders of QuillBot have changed my ideas about how to make products and manage people in a big way.

A great way to advance is to be open to new concepts. At the same time, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of the user’s requirements. This is a great example of leadership because it saves time by avoiding activities with undesirable results. Additionally, having the guts to stop acting in ways that have given you and others little faith in the outcome will prevent a major catastrophe in the long run.

When a company has multiple founders, it is crucial to concentrate on the growth of the others rather than just one founder’s personal interests. The product and those around you are more likely to benefit from this shared cooperation and bonding.

It is essential that you consider your internal workforce in addition to your external user base, as you are constantly working to develop and improve the product. It implies that expanding and satisfying your user base ought to be equivalent to expanding and satisfying your workforce. They both represent different facets of the same thing. There will be a force multiplier in everything you do when the people who work for you are as enthusiastic as you are. The system self-corrects, keeps an eye out for potential hazards, and looks for excellent opportunities.

Putting such a system in place is difficult. The same way that one could see the fish, plants, and rocks through the aquarium’s glass wall, people should be able to see this closed system. It should be transparent and truthful. To expose oneself and be receptive to advice and criticism requires a lot of guts and humility. But when done well, it fosters comradery and commitment.

Being authentic and looking for the same authenticity in others is a fantastic method for achieving rapid growth. This will eliminate a great deal of communication and personality differences, thereby facilitating progress toward the company’s common purpose.

Being open, honest, and authentic keeps a business healthy, vigilant, and productive, just like various organs and systems in the body work together to keep it healthy, vigilant, productive, and happy.
