  • Very insightful and contained thought provoking concepts. I was of the mindset that I needed to know the technology to perfection in order to succeed. Technology being what it is, ever changing, I was exhausting myself with no real growth or progress. I now know that it is only part of the equation and that I should focus more of my time and energy into creating relationships and trust with my clients. Thank you!

MASTERING THE CODE: Software Leadership Workshop

A full day of fun, intentional skill building in becoming a great leader of software teams.   In person, face to face engagement, plus follow on 1:1 coaching to go from idea to implementation

How Great Software is REALLY Made

Ever feel

  • Like the life of your project is sputtering under the weight of miscommunication and technical complexity?

  • Like you've got tons of tools - you're great at the technical stuff, but not so great at the "people stuff" of leading technical teams?

Imagine a world where every code merge coincides with a fusion of minds, where every stand-up meeting resonates with clarity, and your team's spirit is positive and encouraging.


This workshop covers all the "sausage making" that no one talks about  or trains you for when you're running a dev project.  

That world is not a far-off dream—it's the reality we craft at "Mastering the Code".

Harness the Power:

  • Effective Communication: No more round peg, square hole scenarios; tailor your voice to be heard and understood.

  • Conflict Resolution: Turn inter-departmental rivalry into productive collaboration.

  • Innovative Stability: Blend groundbreaking ideas with process discipline for the best of both worlds.

  • Documented Success: Strategies for dealing with documentation that won't make your team shudder.

Each of these topics is intensely focused on the day to day realities of applying these ideas directly to your software development team.


You're "my people"

I've been a developer, a leader of software teams, a head of product, and a coach working with teams all over the world to create great software solutions from amazing teams.

Workshop Snapshot:

Frequently Asked Questions

  • RSVP Riddles: So you're probably wondering, "How do I save my spot at the coolest workshop of the year?" or "Is there a secret handshake I need to learn?" Rest assured, signing up is easier than finding a meme for your Monday mood - sign up here
  • Location Lowdown: "Where's the magic happening?" Good question. Picture a place where the Wi-Fi is strong and the coffee is stronger. Stay tuned and we'll spill the beans on the location soon—trust me, it’s the kind of spot that even Google Maps gets excited about.
  • Time Crunch Conundrum: Juggling time zones? Next, you'll probably ask, "When do we kick this off? Is it aligned with my coffee o'clock?" We get it, timing is everything, so we’re crafting a schedule that plays nice with your busy day. Details incoming!
  • Dress Code Dilemmas: Got you scratching your head about what to wear? "Is it a hoodie affair, or do I need to dust off that suit?" Here's a hint: come as you are, but dress for comfort and creativity. This isn't the Met Gala, but we do want those brain waves to flow freely!
  • Tech Check Checklist: "Do I need to bring my laptop, or will a notepad suffice?" If you're torn between analog and digital, don't fret. We'll outline the tech specs closer to the date—though a thirst for knowledge is the most critical tool you'll need.
  • Cuisine Queries: And of course, "Will there be snacks? Is it even an event without food?" Let's just say that you won’t run on an empty stomach. Brains work best when fueled, so expect some brain food that will keep your gray cells grooving.

So keep your eyes peeled and your inboxes open. The when’s, where's, and what-to-brings are all about to be dropped like the hottest playlist of the year, and you’ll want to be the first to hear it.

Can you feel the anticipation in the air? I sure can, and I promise it’s not just my freshly brewed coffee sending out those vibes!

At the workshop


But Tom: What kinds of questions will you answer at the workshop?

What's the not-so-secret ingredient to this team harmony that paves the way for victory laps around the productivity track?

I'll tell you this: it's not found in your typical management playbook.

You won't want to miss this!

  • What about those time zones, though?: How do you harmonize a team when everyone's working clock looks different?
  • Emojis and GIFs – Really?: Sure, they're funny, but do they actually contribute to better communication and team building?
  • Feeling like a ghost in the machine?: Do you ever wonder if there's more to remote management than just making sure everyone's online?
  • Caught in the crossfire?: Anyone else tired of having their code caught up in the cross-barrels of office politics?
  • The 'good vibes only' myth: Is fostering high morale in the team really that easy, or is it just another corporate fairy tale?
  • Productivity magic – real or illusion?: Just how do you create that dream state where every project is a walk in the park?
  • Secret sauce – Does it even exist?: What if I told you we've got the recipe to turn every group project into a team victory – too good to be true?
