Alex Thissen on solving the underlying problems within organisations.

In the early stages of his career in IT, he dove into the Microsoft space. Eventually becoming a Microsoft MVP and even a Microsoft Regional Director. During his career, he developed the fantastic habit of paying it forward. He strongly believes sharing knowledge is a great way to give back to the community.

At this point of his career, he helps large organizations to identify and solve the underlying problems. But why is it so hard to solve problems sometimes? Well… it takes a certain skill to be able to identify them. The more you do it, the better you get at it, and Alex Thissen is here to guide you on that path. He’s the guy that not only helps you find the problem but teaches you how to fix it.

We talked about topics as managing expectations, helping with long-term goals, maintaining course, reflecting, and how he makes a difference as a multiplier in organizations.

There was a lot to talk about. Enjoy!
