Promoted From Dev to Team Lead: 8 Things They Didn't Tell Me
I was three years into my software engineering career and loving it. Not a care in the world. Then a freight train hit me. I got promoted to dev team lead. The technical skills that make us great developers don't translate to management. In fact, they often hold us back. I learned this the hard way. In this session I expose the top surprises I experienced and the biggest mistakes I made during my first year managing a team. Like going into “superman mode” when there was a problem. Plus, I share 8 things I wish my boss told me before I took the job. Like being data-driven does not mean being a performance tyrant. For developers, this session will help you decide if you want to pursue a management role and what it takes to be successful. If you’re already a team lead, you’ll walk away with my personal playbook and all of my best tips for becoming a more effective leader. CTOs, VPs and Directors of Engineering will learn how to set up new managers for success as they transition from individual contributor to team lead.
