        Working with Laura helped me to navigate difficult performance conversations. I hesitated to give hard feedback because I was worried it would hurt our relationship. Now I'm confident that the feedback I give is fair. I've been able to have meaningful conversations about performance.

        As a staff engineer, mentoring and giving feedback regularly is important but can be difficult as a non-EM. I came to Laura for help with a few specific scenarios and I'm extremely grateful for her guidance. She is a great listener that's also excellent at challenging you and helping you grow.
