On this week’s episode of Humanize Your Workplace, we are joined by Daelynn Moyer.
Daelynn is a Software Engineering Manager at Driveway.com. Prior to moving into a leadership role several years ago, she was a 20-year software engineer, building systems in support of transportation and heavy manufacturing. She’s built networks of electric vehicle charging stations, flight deck software for commercial jets, programming tools for heavy trucks, and control interfaces for electron microscopes. That deep technical background works in her favor as she builds and guides high-performing engineering teams on a foundation of empathy, trust, and authenticity. She and her wife live in the Portland, Oregon area where they obsess over their 1963 ranch home and all things mid-century modern. Her life’s greatest achievement is teaching her cat to stand on his hind legs and turn a pirouette.
We chat about:
- What it looks like for leaders to lead from authenticity
- Creating trust in employees
- Employees seeing leaders as human beings
