Join us in the BreakLine Arena for a conversation with Saydeah Howard, Chief Talent Officer at IVP, a premier venture capital and growth equity firm investing in rapidly-growing technology companies and partnering closely with exceptional management teams.
In this episode, Saydeah discussed some of the common recruiting and leadership pitfalls for founding teams, how remote work has expanded access to talent, why people leaders need to prioritize the daily experience of their teams over social media posts, and how the power of practice will enhance your life. (She even wrote a book about it!)
Saydeah also holds kindness and empathy as core tenets. You can sense it with her encouragement to stretch for what you really want. "Don't be scared of trying something new. You've done it before. You've had a first day at school or at work where you didn't know any of the acronyms or where the bathroom was. You learned it. You asked questions, you read, you studied, you did what it took to succeed."
