Welcome to Lead Time. A community for engineering leaders who aspire to create better working environments for their teams; who want to build work cultures where personal growth and company growth go hand-in-hand, where productivity and well-being are not in conflict, and where everyone feels empowered to do their best work.
This community grew from the desire for a place where we can all learn from each other, discuss ideas, and share challenges. Too many managers are thrown into the role without adequate support or training. The line manager in particular is one of the most overworked and under supported roles in our industry, yet they have an outside impact on a team’s ability to be effective and for individuals to feel happy and engaged in their work.
Our aim is to create a space where we can share experiences and resources, and support each other as we collectively map the road to “better.” We will facilitate contributions from luminaries across the industry and offer discussion prompts to get your brain going. Our hope is that this can become a watering hole where you can drop by as frequently as you want and connect with people who understand what you’re going through.
Lead Time is sponsored and moderated by the team at Range. We’re engineers trying to make life for engineering teams better, and have been longing for a community like this, so we thought we’d make it ourselves.
We will also have zero-tolerance for bullying, trolling, or unkind behavior. If you see behavior in conflict with our values and code of conduct, please bring it to our attention and we will take action immediately.
Thanks for wanting to make the workplaces of tomorrow, better than they are today.
