Many software development teams promote technical contributors to managers without understanding the talent required and without developing the skills they will need in their new role. New software development managers are often forced to learn on their own and on the job, often rediscovering techniques (if they are lucky) that have been proven and known for decades.
I may be able to help your team through personalized coaching or an in-person training program. Currently I offer two training programs:
- Communication, Productivity, and Leadership for Technologists
- Management and Leadership Basics for Technology Managers and Directors
