Michael LaVista, the founder, and CEO of Caxy Interactive, a Chicago-based software consulting and development agency, has released his book titled ‘Superpowered.’ It contains priceless advice from 37 technology executives on leveraging the power of technology to achieve remarkable outcomes.
“Superpowered goes to the core of why some companies have technology leaders who succeed in growing themselves and the value of the work through seven key superpowers,” says Michael LaVista while explaining why he wrote the book. “Readers will realize that being successful in tech is a lot more about these seven leadership superpowers and a lot less about specific tech.”
Michael started the book on the concept of a growth mindset. He labels it the gateway superpower. He says that everyone needs to cultivate the belief that they can change and grow. It is a core skill that can open up new opportunities and growth possibilities.
Superpowered deals with the seven powers, namely vision, influence, listening, learning, design thinking, story-telling, and mindset.
The book is aimed at those technology superheroes constantly trying to get the attention of their leaders to impress upon them the power that technology has to transform their company and supercharge its success potentially.
Superpowered offers the correct answers to tech experts struggling to put together a more focused team on their agendas instead of collectively achieving a common goal.
Michael has some more advice for people who want to work alone in achieving their objectives.
“One of my motivations for writing the book was to try to save someone a decade of banging their head against the wall and trying to figure everything out from scratch. These ideas are ones I might have resisted in the beginning. Maybe these ideas are the ones that resonate with a reader. But keep searching out other voices to find ones that work for you. Don’t try to do it all on your own,” is his advice to such executives.
