BoS USA 2018 Mikey Trafton Managing a Badass Team

CTO, Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas Managing a Bad-Ass Team Mikey Trafton's slide deck from Business of Software Conference USA 2018 Michael ‘Mikey’ Trafton is an entrepreneur from Austin, Texas. He currently leads technology initiatives at Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, that uses technology to help it be the coolest movie theater in the world according to Wired. A serial entrepreneur, Mikey is an expert in building high-performance teams with amazing cultures. Prior to joining the Alamo, Mikey ran technology companies in the IT Services, Real Estate, and Healthcare IT industries. He is most proud of Blue Fish Development Group, a software consulting firm providing custom software solutions to Fortune 500 companies like Southwest Airlines, Wells Fargo, and Bausch + Lomb. A few years ago, Mikey turned Blue Fish over to his amazing team, and they are still running it (and kicking ass) today. Mikey has a passion for helping entrepreneurs through mentoring, coaching, and investing. He is a regular attendee and has spoken at Business of Software Conference talking about, ‘How to build a world class culture in 3 easy steps’ and, ‘Recruiting a badass team’ How to Manage Your Badass Team So you’ve hired a team of badasses and now you have to “manage” them, whatever that means. In this talk, Mikey will share the methods, tools, and processes he has used over the years to take a team of badasses and turn them into a badass team. He’ll answer questions such as: How do I delegate effectively? What makes a good performance review? How do I terminate an employee with grace and compassion? How do I manage someone when I’m not an expert in their field? How do I design a compensation plan that truly motivates? How do I hold people accountable when I usually avoid conflict at all costs?
