Tech Leaders Hub #9: From “hands-on” to leading leaders: how to scale your tech team as CTO

When you’re scaling fast, you need to learn to make things happen through other people: your team.

You may have been a “hands-on” CTO in the past, but that model won’t work when you enter into the hypergrowth phase.

If you feel it’s time to start empowering your developers to become leaders themselves, our session will be perfect for you.

Our guest was Alvaro Moya, founder of a training program for tech leaders featuring mentors from companies like Paypal, Dropbox, and Typeform.

Topics we covered:

  • What to do when you feel robbed of the time to properly train your people;
  • How to transform from a “hands-on CTO” to a manager of managers;
  • How to create a high-performing team of leaders that will make autonomous decisions, hire great people under them, and maintain the company culture.
