Driven by the ethos, “When you build a place where people want to work, you build a place where people want to bring their work,” Sheila Burkett realized to find the kind of company she and fellow women in tech sought, they’d have to build it themselves. Under Sheila’s leadership, an award-winning equitable workplace was born.
“One piece of advice I’d give my younger self is to set my own definition of success, and pursue it,” she shares.
Sheila’s CEO tips:
- Delegate tasks you don’t enjoy doing.
- Entrepreneurs think fast. CEOs must slow down, and make sure the team is in alignment.
- When it comes to mission, vision, values — keep it simple.
- Embrace explaining things in different ways to different people.
