What do you do when you are not working?
I spend time with my family, especially my kids. I also love to read books and go on long walks. And lots of sleep 🙂
What is a skill or strength that sets you apart from others?
Emotional Intelligence and Collaboration.
What (or who) inspires you?
Life inspires me. My kids inspire me the most these days.
My 4 yo daughter has taught me a lot about Metrics and Estimation. The other day, I bought her some finger chips. I asked her to give me 10 pieces of those to me. She negotiated telling she’ll give me 2. I said, I won’t accept less than 5. All she did was pick up 1 finger chip, cut it into 5 pieces and hand it over to me.
This is what happens when people manage by numbers!
