Podcast – Episode 17:
The Lessons of Amazon

Tech Leadership Tips from an Insider

It’s always interesting when you meet people who’ve made dramatic shifts from one field into another — in this episode, we speak with a scientist who made a spectacular, successful and exciting leap into the tech world. You may have heard of the company where guest David Glick ended up: a little startup they call Amazon! David Glick shares the inside scoop on how immersing himself in the “Amazonian” culture molded his tech leadership. Now CTO at FLEXE (a flexible on-demand warehousing and fulfillment company), David Glick has much hard-won leadership wisdom to share.

“… don’t know what you call it, a macho thing, kind of a firefighter theme, which is, “Oh, we’re so good at putting out fires.” After about 10 years of that, even about one year of that became not as much fun for me. I said, let’s do fire prevention!”

Key takeaways from the Podcast are:

  • The layer cake of leadership (how to enhance and advance your tech career).
  • Lessons from leading in Amazon.
  • The truth about AI/ML.
