Special thanks go out to my editors, Laurel Ruma and Ashley Brown, who helped this first-time author get through her book without too many tears.
Thank you to Michael Marçal, Caitie McCaffrey, James Turnbull, Cate Huston, Marc Hedlund, Pete Miron, bethanye Blount, and Lara Hogan for providing anecdotes on leadership to share with our readers.
Thanks to everyone who gave me valuable feedback during the writing process, including Timothy Danford, Rod Begbie, Liz Crawford, Cate Huston, James Turnbull, Julie Steele, Marilyn Cole, Katherine Styer, and Adrian Howard.
Special thanks to my collaborator, Kellan Elliott-McCrea, for his numerous bits of management wisdom, and to all of my CTO Dinner friends for your advice over the years, much of which made it into this manuscript.
To my long-time coach, Dani Rukin, thank you for helping me get out of my head, and for encouraging me to always stay curious.
Last but not least, thanks to my husband, Chris, for the many dinner-table debates that shaped some of the trickiest writing. His insights and edits have helped me become the writer I am today.
