Today we are talking to Michael Lopp, Author of Managing Humans, and his latest book The Art of Leadership: Small Things, Done Well. And we discuss the payoff of having patience over the long term, what people aren’t thinking about when it comes to leadership and the concept of anti-flow.

All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

About Michael:

Michael Lopp is a veteran Silicon Valley-based engineering leader who builds both people and product at historic companies such as Slack, Borland, Netscape, Palantir, Pinterest, and Apple. When he’s not deeply worrying about staying relevant, he writes about backpacks, bridges, humans, and leadership at the popular weblog, Rands in Repose. He currently works at Apple. This is the way.

Michael has written three books. His first book “Managing Humans, 3rd Edition” is a popular guide to the art of engineering leadership and clearly explains that while you will be rewarded for what you build, you will only be successful because of your people. His second book “Being Geek” is a career handbook for geeks and nerds alike. Michael’s third book, Small Things, Done Well, explains how focusing on the small parts of leadership is critical to becoming a better leader.

Michael rides gravel bikes, wonders about semicolons, drinks red wine, and tries to understand how forests work amongst the redwoods of Northern California because curiosity is how you grow.
