Join us for an insightful discussion with tech leaders Monica Giambitto, head of Engineering at Beyond, and Marc Philipp Clemens, CEO & Founder at CodeControl, on a new episode of Today's Top Tech Leaders titled "Unleashing Potential: The Power of Mentorship in Tech"

Monica shares her remarkable journey, starting from her university days and her early experiences as a developer, all the way to her current role in Munich. Throughout this episode, she delves into the pivotal role that mentorship played in her professional development.

In addition to finding a good recruiter who genuinely cares and deeply understands your preferences for a company, Monica underscores the critical role of a nurturing manager who actively fosters opportunities for learning, growth, and mentorship. Furthermore, Monica believes that people need to feel supported and empowered to make the most of their personalities and knowledge. While some individuals naturally embrace this empowerment, others may have insecurities about their abilities. Monica stresses the importance of pushing such individuals because, psychologically, they may underestimate their capabilities when, in reality, they possess exceptional skills.

In her role as a tech leader, Monica emphasizes the need to constantly optimize for learning. She shares strategies for fostering a culture of continuous improvement and highlights the importance of tailoring challenges to individuals' personalities and learning interests.
