Hi there, my name is Soroush Salehian, though I go by Rush. I am a leader, a coach, a mentor and a people person.

About me:
I have spent nearly 20 years as an engineer working on distributed, world class software that has been used by millions of users around the world working for very large high scale companies such as Microsoft, DocuSign, Meta and Splunk. I have spent over 10 of those years leading, supporting and growing extremely high performing teams.

I have always adopted a people first leadership mindset. Looking back, the most successful part of my job has always been mentoring, coaching and empowering engineers to grow in their careers. Being part of that growth has given me the most joy. Throughout, I have had the opportunity of working with some very smart and dedicated people and have helped shape them into inspiring leaders.

Throughout my career I have been privileged to have had some great managers, mentors and coaches that have guided me to become the leader I am today, and now, I want to be part of your journey and offer you my experience and partnership to help you reach your ultimate career goals.

How I can help:
What I can offer you is a partnership and mentorship that will help you find the way to overcome challenges and grow as a leader. I will be your sounding board, challenge you and ask you questions that guide you to reach the conclusions that fit your situation the best. As a result, there is never one solution that fits all, it’s a conversation and a relationship.

My areas of expertise and challenges that I know I can help with are:

- Strategic thinking and planning
- Influencing your organization’s strategy
- Making career choices and choosing the right challenges
- Career track changes from individual contributor to an inspiring leader
- How to grow and coach your team
- Managing change for you and your team
- Performance management for your team

With all that said, let’s connect
