I currently split my work time roughly 50-50 between coaching and Polaris Ventures. I’ve found that these projects complement each other well in several ways, so I’m excited to continue with this setup.
Within coaching, my main focus this year is the following:
- Distilling and articulating what I’ve learned about coaching over the last four years and identifying what’s next in my skill development.
- Developing a deep understanding of how people learn by studying literature from the learning sciences, educational psychology, neurobiology, and other disciplines.
At Polaris Ventures, I oversee all operational matters and build capacity wherever needed. This role emerged from my previous work as COO of the Effective Altruism Foundation (now Center on Long-Term Risk). I’m getting a sense of continuation and stability from this and an opportunity to have an outsized impact.
I’m spending more time traveling and meeting friends and family over the next two months. I enjoy the exploration and variation at this time of the year. It also helps me live a more work-focused and “boring” life otherwise.
