I had an excellent call with Gareth. He was very patient with me and listened to each and every one of my questions, which is one of the tell-tale signs of a very skilled communicator. I came into our mentee session with some idea of maybe how he'd go about answering the questions I posed to him, but he helped me see view points I hadn't yet considered.
Thank you Gareth for donating your time & I look forward to speaking to you again one day when I have an update on how I leveraged your mentorship :)
Gareth is the best mentor I could ask for. He provided very helpful technical resources that I could use to up-level my technical skills, and also provided outstanding leadership advice. He's very sincere and generous. I'm very grateful to be able to learn from his expertise.

Start With Why - How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action
Simon Sinek's recent video on 'The Millennial Question' went viral with over 150 million views. Start with Why is a global bestseller and the TED Talk based on it is the third most watched of all time. Why are some people and organisations more inventive, pioneering and successful than others? And why are they able to repeat their success again and again? In business, it doesn't matter what you do, it matters WHY you do it. Start with Why analyses leaders like Martin Luther King Jr and Steve Jobs and discovers that they all think in the same way - they all started with why. Simon Sinek explains the framework needed for businesses to move past knowing what they do to how they do it, and then to ask the more important question-WHY? Why do we do what we do? Why do we exist? Learning to ask these questions can unlock the secret to inspirational business. Sinek explains what it truly takes to lead and inspire and how anyone can learn how to do it.View
Leaders Eat Last - Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don't
Simon Sinek's recent video on 'The Millennial Question' went viral with over 150 million views. In Leaders Eat Last, Sinek explores how leaders can inspire cooperation and change, and focuses on the millennial generation in the workplace. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work. This is not a crazy, idealised notion. In many successful organisations, great leaders are creating environments in which teams trust each other so deeply that they would put their lives on the line for each other. Yet other teams, no matter what incentives were offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why? Today's workplaces tend to be full of cynicism, paranoia and self-interest. But the best organisations foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a Circle of Safety. It separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside. Everyone feels they belong and all energies are devoted to facing the common enemy and seizing big opportunities. As in Start with Why, Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories, from the military to manufacturing, from government to investment banking. He shows that leaders who are willing to eat last are rewarded with deeply loyal colleagues who will stop at nothing to advance their vision. It's amazing how well it works.View
I really enjoyed my time with Gareth. He gave me valuable insights in managing tech debt, prioritization, time management, setting engineering goals, WLB, and general career advice.
Gareth is a very good listener and communicator. He was very generous in his time with me. It was nice to hear him talk about his past experiences in the topics I brought up. The discussions gave me a sense of direction and will surely be beneficial in my career moving forward.
Overall, It was a very positive and valuable interaction. I hope we repeat this again in the future :)
