Stewart Butterfield: "One of the most useful books I've ever read on either leadership or management"
Max Levchin: "In a high-growth startup, such conversations can often be very stressful, and it is easy to lose track of your shared end goal when emotions flare up.
Crucial Conversations covers many of the useful tactics in making sure these conversations are productive, and offers advice on improving relationships with your coworkers."
Stewart Butterfield: "The Making of a Manager is an excellent, approachable and comprehensive guide for those making the transition into management.
This is something we'd give out to new managers at Slack and it could very well set a new standard for new managers."
Sam Altman: "At startups, individuals asked to manage are rarely set-up for success. Julie Zhuo gives new managers the tools they need to help their people and company win."
