Hey there! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I'm Rashid Al Shobaki, and I'm not just an Engineering Leader โ€“ I'm a passionate explorer of possibilities. When I'm not busy engineering success, you'll find me indulging in my other loves: Football, Music, Note-taking, and Sharing Insights and Experience ๐Ÿ“.

My journey began in the heart of Jordan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ด, where I honed my software engineering skills and set the foundation for what was to come. I was fortunate to have navigated three significant transformations since then. Here they are:

Starting My Own Business ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ป

In 2011, I co-founded iaraby, a company that specializes in building technological mobile apps for smartphones. At the time, smartphones were gaining popularity, giving us a unique advantage. Being a co-founder required me to wear multiple hats, including human resources, software development, content creation, operational management and leadership.

Going Global ๐ŸŒ

Fast forward to 2017, I decided to explore new global markets and started working as an engineering team lead in Germany. This introduced me to new challenges, and I reframed my purpose from building code to building coders. I wanted to help engineers be successful, so I focused on becoming a successful leader for my team.

Remote Leadership ๐Ÿš€

In 2020, the pandemic hit the world, and I underwent my third transformation, becoming one of the top remote engineering managers at Forto. This also made me one of the go-to references for remote leadership online, which was an outstanding achievement.

My career isn't just a job; it's a philosophy. ๐ŸŒŸ The cornerstone of my belief?

Successful People are the core of Successful Businesses!

With over 14 years in engineering and management, I've been fortunate to learn from brilliant minds. But my journey wasn't a stroll โ€“ it was a climb that transformed me into the leader I am.

Becoming a manager isn't just about titles; it's a metamorphosis of skills and attitudes. ๐Ÿ’ผ And what separates the good from the extraordinary? The art of learning and practicing, which I've embraced wholeheartedly. I've soaked up knowledge like a sponge through podcasts, books, courses, and conferences.

But the real magic happens when knowledge is shared. Seeing fellow managers benefit from my insights fueled my desire to make a difference. That's why I embarked on the mission to take my notes to the world โ€“ giving birth to my newsletter Managernotes! ๐Ÿš€

My goal? Simple yet profound:

To Help Leaders and Managers Navigate Their Way to Be Super Leaders!

So, I'm here to light the way, whether you're navigating leadership challenges or seeking a path to supercharge your management prowess onsite or remotely.
