This newsletter is written by me, Suzan Bond. I’m a former COO of a scaling startup, trained facilitator, and certified leadership coach with over a decade of experience.

I help leadership teams become more cohesive, often at offsites. I host the LeadDev Bookmarked book club and guest contributor for the Work Life section of Fast Company. I’m the creator of the Leadership Archetypes framework.

I’ve been studying leadership, psychology and organizational behavior for many years. I love connecting with others who are interested in these topics.
