How do I work with Leo Laporte? With passion, commitment and respect for his vision. I am a force, I drive, I produce and I like to move quickly. Leo operates differently than me and he moves at a slower pace, reflects, considers and looks for organic solutions which is completely opposite of how I work. It frustrates me yet intrigues me. I still marvel at Leo's wisdom and brilliance and he has opened my eyes to new perspectives and approaches that were missing in my arsenal of experience. However I opened Leo's eyes to the realm of running and growing a vital business, specifically a start-up in uncharted territory. We quickly realized that we complement each other and that we are a powerful team.
Do we debate, argue, disagree, battle? Of course we do! When I met Leo he was surrounded by "yes" people who either worshipped him or who did not speak up to him. When I joined the team I challenged Leo. It was his job to present his vision about TWiT and it was my job to paint it. We don't always have the same opinion and there have been heated debates but we always maintain respect for each other and for the business. We want quality shows and the best technology news we can provide our audience with while working towards our goal to be the next CNN in Tech!
