Engineering teams at fast-growing startups face a unique challenge: As they welcome dozens and even hundreds of new faces a year, they must preserve the original ethos of what made them so successful in the first place. Without a set of clearly communicated and widely distributed core values, large engineering teams will have a fractured identity that prevents them from working in lockstep. In this talk, Brian will show how establishing guiding principles from the onset can help startups create more cohesive engineering teams as they scale. Sharing best practices from his experience at Lucidchart overseeing a team that has grown from a handful to hundreds of engineers, Brian will discuss how to clearly define your core values, communicate them to the organization, and enable a high-performance team. Attendees will discover how to put core values at the center of everything they do, including hiring, coaching, morale, promotions and even difficult conversations.
