  • 1) The output of management is a high performing team.

  • 2) The team’s primary function is to coordinate action.

  • 3) Humans coordinate action through communication.

  • 4) Communication is based on each individual's values, beliefs and identity.

Khalid Halim is the cofounder of Reboot, a coaching firm that’s worked with leaders at companies such as CoinbaseLyftKickstarter and Etsy, yet what’s more impressive than its list of clients is when Reboot started with them.

Halim has helped a founding team of six people in an apartment grow into a now famous startup that’s 100 employees strong. He’s coached an executive team as its company grew from a 100-person, domestic startup with a $300 million valuation to a 1,000-person multinational valued at $5 billion. There’s an adage that being an entrepreneur is like building the plane as you fly it. Yet even before helping founders navigate their metaphorical flight paths, Halim literally fueled the tech community at its greatest heights. He’s the founder and former CEO of a California-based inflight catering provider for private jets.
