I recently joined Fletcher Richman on his new Support Leaders podcast to talk about Automattic’s support team. The episode is live now. It’s a quick 38-minute listen where we talk about how I came to work in support, how we work at Automattic, and some of my favorite books.
I joined Chase, Carolyn, and Jeff on the Support Ops podcast yesterday afternoon. We talked about goals for 2016 and how to make the most of the new year.
With the Happiness team at Automattic we set some OKR-like goals for the second half of 2015 and made a lot more progress than we did in prior times. If that interests you I’d highly recommend this Google Ventures video about OKRs.
I had a fun time talking with Scott Tran about the support team at Automattic. The podcast is about 40 minutes and we covered everything from hiring to team structure to the type of culture we value. It’s live now over on Scott’s site.
This was my first time recording a podcast and it was a lot of fun. Scott has other interviews that focus on support at companies like Basecamp, Olark, and Zapier. If you’re interested you should give them a listen.
