Taking on a leadership position can be a very rewarding but also draining experience. I’d like to share some of the exciting things that stood out to me at DrupalCon in terms of leadership. In the last few years, I was able to take on a number of different leadership positions such as CTO at Amazee Labs, running the #d8rules initiative or co-organizing camps in Austria and Switzerland. To me, it’s a deeply satisfying experience to be part of a team that works towards a common goal and see myself being able to help drive us to be successful. At the same time, leadership always felt very difficult to me. Why wasn’t I able to take decisions effectively? Why wouldn’t others follow my advice as I wanted them to?
Looking up to other leaders at work and in our community is really valuable to me. It allows me to feel inspired, keep improving, and relate my own struggle to the struggles of others. I’d like to share an overview of the things that inspired me during this DrupalCon Nashville.
