A fat person talking about fitness is like a nun giving sex advice.

I do look like the kind of person who, as TV or movies might have it, does not exercise, has never been to a gym, and does not, as they say, “take care of themselves.” For a long time, I bought into that story, wholeheartedly, accepting what it said as the truth about me. Until I realized that fatness—that the way I felt about fatness—was something totally different.

In my past life as a consultant at IBM, I led Ideation workshops with corporate leaders. I suggested to my group the classic Post-It Brainstorming strategy. We all scribble out as many ideas as we can — even ‘ stupid ones’. After generating a few dozen App ideas, we sorted them into categories to gain a better understanding of what themes we were collectively excited about.

Skillshare: Communicating option value to new hires

To determine the target value of the grant, there is a multiplier applied to the salary for every role/level in the company. Here are the multipliers Skillshare uses:

  • Exec team/C-level: 2.45
  • VP: 1.86
  • Director: 0.54
  • Specialist/key contributor IC: 0.43
  • Sr. Engineer: 0.40
  • Engineer: 0.26
  • Individual contributor/most staff: 0.23

When they get to the offer stage, they send candidates a slide deck walking them through the offer in plain language. In the deck, the option grant is broken out in detail — both how they got to the number and their estimated value of that grant.

It’s all about the long-term…

In his 1997 shareholder letter, Jeff Bezos issued a manifesto “It’s all about the long-term” where he laid out his approach to business and to running Amazon. He pledged that decisions would be made with a long-term lens and with a focus on market leadership. 

This manifesto has been included in every single shareholder letter for the last 20 years! After reading these letters, it is clear that the fundamentals of how Amazon does business remain the same. Talk about commitment and consistency.
