Working with Adam has been a truly transformational relationship. Adam has been a critical mentor and coach during times of uncertainty and complexity. His ability to provide calm leadership and direction during change is inspiring.
Adam brought together various leaders and set-up mentorship style meetings to make new PO onboarding seamless-and that was only a small part of his enormous contribution as an Agile Coach. He also consistently pressure tests new ideas and is always open to feedback from users as his main goal is only to improve the Team overall. Adam’s focus on elevating women in leadership was incredibly valuable to me as he helped me seek out opportunities to grow and develop as a leader.
I have seen, first hand, the transformational effect that Adam’s leadership can have on an organization. His teams will walk through fire for him, based on the trust and integrity he builds. He is calm in the face of chaos and navigates a course forward (always forward) with manageable, achievable goals. He is willing to go to bat to change the system, if that is necessary for his team to succeed.
Adam has an acute ability to cut through noise in a way that would distract most others and can instead focus on what actually matters to deliver results. I would attribute this to his lack of ego, genuine good nature, and team focused winning attitude.
I learned many things from Adam, but the most important thing was courage. He was fearless in the face of challenges and provided me with great comfort and the desire to carry on. I have great admiration for Adam as a marketing professional and as a friend.
