Our Core Values

Authentic Engagement:

Be real, be you. We embrace the full spectrum of our humanity—passions, quirks, and all. Straight talk is our language, fostering growth with respect and candor.

Solution-Driven

We are not here for the whiners, for the victims. We are here for the Operations people who take life by the horns and overcome any challenge. The Ops Spot is a place to bring your challenges, without fear of judgment. But we don’t wallow or coddle, we help each other. Every problem is brought to the table with a commitment to taking action & finding a solution.

Generosity Pays Off

Share freely, learn exponentially. Our culture thrives on “holding nothing back.” When you contribute your insights, expect a wealth of knowledge in return. This will 10X your learning.

Unwavering Support

We get Operations—and we’ve got your back. Celebrate wins and milestones together; our collective success amplifies your career and achievements.

Have Fun

Play hard, work fun. In our world, work is play- and we’re passionate about it! The Ops Spot is where passion meets profession. If you “nerd out” on cool innovations, tech, and other things that your co-workers just don’t get, you’ll be in good company here.

Our Why:

Our Why:

Foundation:
In the crisp wintry air of Sedona, Cameron Herold and Jhana Li met to discuss their shared vision to create a new kind of community. A network For Operators, By Operators. As a result, The Ops Spot was born with the mission to create a global platform where Operations Pros grow and thrive together.

Our Why:
Operators often find themselves isolated, under-represented, and struggling to find the resources they need to win. That’s why we created The Ops Spot — your one-stop shop for connection, innovation, and the resources you need to elevate and accelerate your career.

Who We Are:
Cameron Herold, former COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, and known for his bestsellers “Vivid Vision” and “The Second In Command,” today propels organizations to new heights through his COO Alliance, exclusively serving COOs of companies with $5M to $500M in revenue globally.

Jhana Li, with her expertise in catapulting early-stage startups to success, now channels her skills as a COO and Head Operations Coach to hundreds of digital companies into nurturing emerging Operators at her Spyglass Academy.

Meet Hendrix

YOUR COMMUNITY MANAGER

In February 2023, while at Chocola Tree in Sedona, Jhana and Cameron struck up a conversation with Hendrix, a tech-savvy optimist on the lookout for a meaningful role. As they shared The Ops Spot’s vision, Hendrix lit up — he too was on a mission to help operations people excel in their transformation as leaders – making this the dream role he’d been seeking.

His shared mission, enthusiasm, and a perfectly timed joke sealed the deal: Hendrix was the perfect match for our community!
