Episode 4: Making Mondays Less Painful
This week, the SphereCast team interviews Alexandra Detweiler, Director of Channel Partnerships, North America, at monday.com. Detweiler’s company is a “Work OS” — an open, visually-driven SaaS platform that allows teams to plan, organize, and track projects, all in one unified place. The platform features fully customizable workflows and a variety of off-the-shelf integrations with some of the world’s most popular software solutions. monday.com boasts more than 7,000 reviews of 4.6 out of 5 or higher on reputable review sites, including G2, Capterra, Trustpilot, TrustRadius, and GetApp.
On the podcast, Alexandra digs deep on the value of monday.com — a value that teams from some of the world’s largest and most successful companies have come to find. Companies like NBC, BBC Studios, Hulu, Discovery Networks, Adobe, and Coca Cola. Alexandra also talks through her career journey, including what drove her move from a large enterprise to a scrappy startup and what makes for a good mentor.
“I find inspiration most in people who rise to whatever they’re doing and however they find success in nontraditional ways. I’m attracted to people who fail before they succeed. And I love seeing people succeed because they really did what they loved.”
On mentorship: “I surrounded myself with people who were committed to my success and wanted to help me. And me, them. It’s a two-way relationship.”
