Arbel came into Lightricks, a company that develops video and image editing mobile apps, as the new VP Product, with a clear vision to restructure the entire Product team.
Quite a challenge right? but he understood that in order to succeed, he would have to work together with the team and not against them.
Throughout this episode, Arbel walks us through the entire re-org process, from the initial brainstorming session to the internal communication phase, and finally to the execution phase.
According to Arbel, a good manager today must be thinking constantly about how to give individuals various ways of promoting themselves. It can be internally, by owning an initiative to represent Lightricks at a professional convention.
Arbel tries to be very open with this team. He believes in the kind of “everything on the table” kind of communication, which helps everyone feel comfortable addressing one another, enhancing the trust and connectivity between one another.
