I'm Oliviero, and I'm italian.
I work in a research and consultancy firm here in Milan: we are 40 and we manage different research projects for many clients, about many different topics. As a Senior Consultant (maybe a strange definition, since I'm 31), I manage teams that change very 'fluidly', made of people who are almost never working only with me, but also with someone else.
I probably work in one of the most far-from-the-big-USA-corporate environment :wink: but I really appreciate MT, and always try to apply what I learn here. I think that ideas and models like O3s, coaching and feedback are universal, even if sometimes you have to adjust the details. And I guarantee you that they work, even if I'm not a Manager in the traditional sense.
Happy to be here
P.S.: should you need a help to translate Mark's book in Italian, I'd be glad to contribute!
