I’m Maya Watson, the co-founder and CEO at Manual, where we’re improving the people part of work.
Over the last 18 years, I’ve advised and worked alongside some of the greatest leaders of our time, including Oprah Winfrey, the Obamas, and Reed Hastings. The people part of work has always been my favorite part and it’s the most important. I’m really passionate about reimagining how we work, where we do our best work and live our best life.
During my downtime, I enjoy reading, writing and watching Real Housewives. Some of my favorite things are tacos, tequila and deep conversations. I live in Atlanta with my two dogs, Claire Huxtable and Tina Turner. My daughter just started college so I'm also getting used to being an empty nester.
Ask me anything about leading high-performing teams with a human-centered approach, the privilege of leading people, emotional intelligence, leaving the corporate world, the future of work, building a great culture, being a brand or marketing leader, or anything else!
