Things I believe
// We are all humans doing our best and we should be nice to each other

// The lines between B2B and B2C are getting very blurry as individuals monetize their skills and talents (ex. creators, subject matter experts, real estate agents, celebrities) – they need the functionality of B2B tooling and expect the delightful UX of a B2C product

// Education and career pathing need to fundamentally shift to remove socioeconomic, bias and access blockers

// Removing barriers to entry for both artistic and technical creation with AI/ML and platform layering will power the next generation of successful tools

Vision: I believe that to solve the world’s toughest problems, we need to find and develop more North Star leaders with game-changing ideas.

Problem: Leadership is increasingly important as we face complex global challenges such as climate change and cybersecurity. Yet leaders who can tackle these hard problems don’t always know how to self-diagnose their leadership style or maximize their impact.

Research: In my Harvard Business School study on high impact leaders, I found two archetypes of leaders. Gold Star Leaders seek broad impact by rising high in influential organizations. They are politically savvy operators who can deftly navigate complex systems. North Star Leaders seek deep impact by crossing boundaries in pursuit of a solution to a specific problem. They are visionary founders and moonshot thinkers with high standards for knowledge and talent.

Key Issue: Both types of leaders are needed to create and build innovative, industry-shaking organizations. However, ventures can experience friction if North Star and Gold Star C-suite executives are not aligned.

Mission: My mission is to accelerate high impact leaders and “All Star” teams through star leadership evaluation, insights, and development. Maximizing a leader’s respective star takes awareness, learning agility, and practice.

What I wanted to be what I grew up:

Alexis Duran

Founding Engineer

FreeNOW

Bio

Software crafter, passionate about building accessible user-facing apps, optimising processes, sharing knowledge and living my best life.

I am a tech guy (duh!). I love computers, coding, video-games and nature. More than everything I enjoy the adventure and discovering new things. I can be super competitive, but I will never take over anyone while achieving success for myself, I strongly believe in this Doc Rivers “Ubuntu” boston celtics where in summary I will be better if my team is better. I am the type of person that takes loyalty seriously and that has a strong social sense, always looking to have empathy for others and the problems that surround me. I can be a little egocentric from time to time and also have some episodes of selfishness, but in the end I try to be aware of myself embracing understanding and leaving my ego aside. I can say that I love books and I am a bit obsessed with constant improvement on every way possible.
