On this awesome episode, Steve speaks with Matt King, CISO at Belcan, about how he learned not to make assumptions about people’s capabilities and why he believes lifelong learners make for great team members.

Matt and Steve also tackle topics like:
- Your first steps as a new leader
- Overcoming the challenges of leadership early on
- Pairing team members with the tasks they’re best suited to
- Bridging the gap between the technical and business element of the job, before you make the shift
