So, Juan, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me today. If you could just start, maybe introduce yourself:

That’s awesome how you made it from the kitchens all the way into tech. That’s very inspiring.
Could you share with me … what are the biggest challenges you face now in engineering leadership?
Wow, it’s clear you have your hands full. When we spoke earlier, you were telling me about what you do with hiring.
Could you share with me a little bit about your approach to hiring?
All right. Thanks.
What would be your advice for managers who are just starting out?
That’s great advice, great advice. So, a lot of managers, they’re very busy.
And so, what is your workday like and how do you manage your time, emails, meetings and all that?
All right, that’s really interesting how you use themes and all that, yeah, certainly. That’s great to have a good EA.
Could you share, maybe: what’s a personal habit that you feel contributes to your success?
Could you share an internet resource, tool, app, something that really helps you at work that you couldn’t live without?
All right, I’ll have to check it out: sounds good.
If you could recommend one book to managers, what would it be and why?
Yeah, that’s a great book. All right, almost last question, here:
What is your approach to mentoring and coaching members of your team?
All right, Juan, you’ve been super generous with your time and I really, really appreciate it. It’s been a huge value from your interview. I think everyone’s really gonna have a lot of good takeaways from it.
