What is it like to work with Stevvve?
Below are some people I’ve worked with saying some very kind
things about my leadership skills.
“Steve was the most uniquely emotionally intelligent manager I've ever encountered. He tirelessly works to make sure you feel comfortable, supported, and heard. Whether that means sticking up for your views in a meeting, advocating your career change, or remembering everyone's and their mothers' birthdays, Steve takes the time and effort. I found many growth opportunities came from Steve's guidance, maturity, and empathy.”
“He is not afraid of speaking up on issues that could affect his team, but does so respectfully and with tact. He listens to everyone with genuine care and more importantly, HEARS what you are trying to say. He was the first manager I've had that I truly respected. ”
“In every interaction he is focused on the outcome and had a very positive impact on our team. Steve holds himself and others to high integrity and willing to go beyond the call of duty to get the task at hand accomplished.”
“He gives a lot of trust to his team, which allows us to do what we need to do without worrying about being micromanaged.”
"Steve cares deeply about the happiness, productivity, and success of his reports”
“His ability to discern skill level was much more accurate compared to most managers. Steve had a solid understanding of his own knowledge and the capabilities of his team so that we never wasted time with improper assignments or suffer through lack of challenging assignments.”
“Before Steve hired me at Stack Overflow in 2017, I was working in an entirely different industry. I did not like that industry, but it was what I had gone to college for, so even though I wanted to try my hand at the technology/advertising field, I was very hesitant to ditch my old experience and start completely new. However, after interviewing with Steve, my hesitation had been mostly cleared. I got a sense of trust and reassurance from Steve, which had been such a stark contrast with the manager-employee relationship that I was used to in my previous jobs. So when I finally got an offer from Stack Overflow, I took it without thinking twice. Without making this sound bigger than it is - it had been a life changing decision for the better. I have not looked back ever since, and I have learned so much from Steve, both in how to work and manage effectively, as well as how to treat people with respect and care. I am very thankful to Steve for taking a chance on hiring me.”
