Leading in a Technical World
So many things come into play when it comes to leadership. Although being in a technical environment introduces another level of consideration, this group’s conversation focused on the traditional leadership issues.
Being transparent, doing what you say, communication, awareness, leading by example, etc.
Honestly, we know what’s important…how do leadership roles get filled by someone missing these things?
One big reason is hard conversations are not happening. It’s easy to put something off in hopes an will issue go away. We’ll just promote Joe…he’s been here the longest.
Leaders and employees both need to be comfortable being uncomfortable (Jason Barnaby will like hearing that). While changes continue happening at a faster rate, we have to be proactive with honest conversations.
We all move forward by being life-long learners.
