S2E2 Mike Lyles - Testing & leadership
35 min
Today, I'll interview Mike Lyles. Even though we've been in contact for so many years, this was the first time we got the chance to finally speak. Mike is a director of QA and Project Management with over 25 years of IT experience. He has recently published a book called The Drive-Thru Is Not Always Faster, where you can learn a lot about leadership, and actually this is the main topic that we will be discussing today!

Episode highlights:

- How an excuse to go to Tampa, Florida resulted in Mike getting into software testing
- The difference between being a manager and being a leader
- Why he wrote a book and the journey that lead to it finally being published
- Why work-life balance is(or should be considered)a fantasy
- The power of social media to learn from others in the industry
