Greetings,

Mark and Mike, you are doing an excellent job. I feel you are addressing a big gap in the realm of personal development training that is seldom discussed.

I work for a major technology company (email me if you are curious) where I am in a fairly high-level program management position without direct reports. In my role I am looked upon as a business leader, even to the managers within my group, helping to define the investments we make. I routinely lead Vteams and have thus far found MT to be extremely helpful in those endeavors. Our group serves as a focal point within the organization for driving change based upon product related feedback and analysis. I am based out of Charlotte, NC, but travel quite a bit since our team is geographically dispersed.

In the tradition of DISC, you can charaterize me as a "High D, fairly high C"

Personally, I am married with two kids (7 & 4). I volunteer at the local YMCA coaching and my wife is an officer in a local charity organization. When not working, I enjoy family, cooking, fencing, and addressing the never ending “honey do” list. Well, OK maybe I don't always enjoy the "honey do" list. :wink:

Hi Jeremy!

Welcome to MT! I think you'll find lots of useful stuff here, whether or not you actually have direct reports.

Welcome sir! Glad you're here, and we like individual contributors too. Nowadays, many roles call for management skills.

Hope you get lots of value from our work together.

Mark

Welcome, Jeremy ... having had a program management group at one point, I know well the challenges (and rewards) of what you do. I hope you continue to find value here.

best regards,
Mike
