Get Together

Scott Amenta of COS Tech Network 📆 Bringing Chiefs of Staff together to refine their roles

Episode Summary

Today we’re talking to Scott Amenta, co-founder of the COS Tech Network, a community of people working as Chiefs of Staff in companies around the world. The COS Tech Network started in 2016 when Scott found himself as a Chief of Staff, a role that quite is new in techland, and, for Scott, felt somewhat undefined. He decided to seek out other Chiefs of Staff so he could learn tips and tricks, and also get inspired about career trajectories the role could lead to. A Medium post call out led to a dinner, a dinner led to a slack group, and the slack group has led to chapters around the world and a wealth of insights and resources. Recently, they even found their community covered by The New York Times. Tune in to learn more about how Scott got COS Tech Network off the ground, and what tools the extremely organized group uses to communicate, collaborate, and connect.

Episode Notes

In each episode of this podcast we interview everyday people who have built extraordinary communities about just how they did it. How did they get the first people to show up? How did they grow to hundreds more members?

COS can be a lonely position, an ambiguous one. Scott had the intuition that others were tossing the same questions around in their head and he did something about it.
