Rob has a Bachelor of Science in Media Science from Sheffield Hallam University and has more than fifteen years experience of building effective teams. Rob’s mission with Cultivated Management is to drive out the command and control style of management that throttles a technology company’s ability to hire and retain great staff, let alone the friction and drag it creates in getting good work done.
I believe that every single technology professional deserves management that cares. Management that improve the work and the systems. Management that builds relationships, discovers people’s strengths and provides a safe environment for people to experiment with new ways of working. In a nutshell, the tech professional of today requires a manager who is always learning and cultivating themselves. My missions is to help managers becomes the managers that tech professionals and tech companies so desperately need. Call me ambitious or a dreamer, but it would be nice to rid the tech world of command and control management.
