So many people encounter frustrations in their lives, but shrug it off and do nothing about it. Greg Koberger is someone who experienced a frustration and decided to do something about it. While creating a solution that benefits millions of people and companies alike, he also built a company on some interesting leadership principles and cultivated a company culture like no other — and that’s what we’re diving into in this episode.
Greg Koberger is the founder of ReadMe, which makes APIs easy to use for millions of people and companies like Lyft and Trello so that they can build awesome products. Greg explains how he discovered this massive gap in the tech world, and how timing played a part in creating a market for him to launch his product into.
His experience in the startup environment also spawned StartUp Escape, escape rooms designed for startups and companies. We dive into how the escape room set-up not only fosters collaboration but also drives innovation by encouraging people to think about things differently and creates other benefits as well. Greg highlights how he uses Challenge Coins to recognize individual contributions, build a more cohesive team, and foster a tight-knit company culture, and why he has a ‘no-guilt’ policy around productivity — which really starts with leadership attitudes, and giving up control.
