014| [ENG] The Importance of Having a Mission: Rocio Mendez, Production Manager @ Tesla

Time for another English special! Lots of you have asked me to make interviews in English and I am listening. I spoke with Rocio Mendez, Industrial Engineer and Production Manager at Tesla.

I clicked with Rocio right away. She was extremely open during our conversation and I felt that I learned a lot with her. From how to have diffcult conversations with peers to managing your time effectively and motivating others.

I make the point on keeping these conversations informal because I find that the more you realize that these people working at tech giants are regular people, I feel that more of you will realize that you too can have a career in tech.

In this episode of Conexiones Rocio shared:
* Her journey as an Industrial Engineer
* How she got to Tesla
* Having tough conversations with peers
* Her philosophy on building and motivating effective teams
* The Tesla Mission
* Working with Elon
