The Craft Of Engineering And Leadership

Being in leadership is a craft of its own. I’ve been an informal leader, a Tech Lead on a few teams, an Engineering Manager to quite a few teams, and a Director of Engineering a few times. The roles and responsibilities are different in every company I’ve been a part of. I’ve been told I stand out as a manager. I’ve been nominated for awards and recognition. The biggest testimonial I have ever received came from an engineer that said “thank you, I’ve never had a manager that cared”. I’ll never forget that.
