This week we’re turning the spotlight on Mike Lasap, our Sales Operations Program Manager.
He has been with Splashtop for almost 1.5 years now, and we’re so lucky to have him on our team!
Q: What do you like the most about working at Splashtop?
A: The opportunity to empower people on our team to feel heard, championed, and supported. My natural curiosity lies in people and problems and I’m extremely grateful to be able to put myself in others’ shoes and see situations from perspectives other than my own. I like to think of it as a partnership, or internal consulting. I go in everyday wanting to help my clients be successful — aka our team.
In turn, helping each other grow and get better together!
Q: Who inspires you the most at Splashtop?
A: I would have to say our SDR team, including our SDR Team Lead, Kai. Our SDRs are typically the first person that our prospects interact with and in many cases it’s really on them to lean in, listen, and set the tone for the conversation moving forward. The role of an SDR/SDR Lead can oftentimes be thankless and I really appreciate the extra thought and effort they put into each interaction.
Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
A: Mind-reading! I believe people do their best work when they feel like they belong — included, valued, and equal. In addition, the ability to connect with and understand others is critically important to your leadership effectiveness.
I think this superpower would truly allow me to show up for and help people feel seen. In turn, charting a course to kinder, more thoughtful, and fulfilling relationships.
Q: Which language do you wish you were fluent in?
A: Tagalog! I’m a first-generation Filipino-American and grew up learning how to understand/read/say simple phrases but would love the ability to hold a conversation.
Kumusta? Nagta-Tagalog ka ba?
Q: If you were given an all-expenses paid vacation, where would you go?
A: Japan! I had 12-hour layover in summer of 2019 and got a chance to explore parts of Tokyo, including Shibuya Crossing, Hachiko Statue, and Uniqlo Ginza. Not to mention, the food itself simply held its own. We’re talking about gyudon, ramen, and PABLO mini cheese tarts!
I’d love the chance to go back soon and take some time to explore further!
