This time I talked to Iván. He is leading a new project at 4Geeks and is on charge of a big team. However he is doing great. Here I qoute some of his team members:
“He is attentive all the time, looking for the best way to give us the route to the solution and continuously motivating us by telling how well we are doing. It is easy to get assignments out when your leader is present throughout the process and supports each of the interns” – Fabricio
“Iván sin duda es un excelente líder y mas allá de ser líder es amigo siempre dispuesto a ayudar. Super atento siempre y nos motiva todos los días aunque el lleve sin dormir dos días haha” – Génesis
“In simple words: a crack” – Juan Carlos
“Attentive, he is always ready to collaborate with anyone who needs his help. Very capable, in addition to having great talent as a leader. Oh and I forgot …. He is very happy, above all things hahaha. He is the one who transmits that good vibe to all of us” – Carlos
Here is a little interview of Ivan’s tastes:
How would you describe yourself?
I’m a very chatty and extrovert person. I can talk with you about everything, but also I’m an excellent listener (or I think so 😂). I really like to make friends and care for other people. I think that all of us need to be happy and I’ll try to get it.
How do you enjoy your free time?
I like to dance, sing, play guitar, play videogames, talk with others, workout, read a book, listen, look for new music, and watch videos on Youtube.
Best series you have ever watched?
- How I met your mother.
- Breaking Bad.
- Game of Thrones (first four seasons).
Mountain or Beach?
Do you practice any sports (adventure, extreme, endurance)?
Well if dance can be considered as a sport, that will be.
What kind of music do you like?
All of them, it depends on the song. I’m not the kind of person that rejects a song without listening to it.
What are your top 5 books of all the time?
- Blindness – Jose Saramago.
- The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss.
- The Wise Man’s Fear – Patrick Rothfuss.
- The Happy Prince – Oscar Wilde.
- The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
What are your top 5 movies of all the time?
- About Time.
- The Lion King.
- Saving Private Ryan.
- The Shawshank Redemption.
- El Secreto de sus Ojos.
What is the most exciting part of being a Project Manager?
It allows me to talk with all people related to the project a lot and I really enjoy it.
Which is the best part of being part of the 4Geeks team?
We’re a family. We care for each other and that’s the best thing here.
What are your goals for this year?
- Keep reading to improve my management skills.
- Go outside (maybe, if the government let us).
- Keep working in myself.
- Be happy.
