Engineering manager resources
Welcome to my README! I've heard that my passion can be a bit intimidating if you don't know me, so I wrote this README in hopes to help you understand how best to work with me. I care deeply about the work I do and the people on my team and I want to help you be your best self and do your best work.
I believe in doing the right thing. I believe in collaborative teams without bullies. I love to ship things quickly and iteratively. I love to learn and to teach. I value context. I will help you become the best person you can be if you let me. I value the safety of the marginalized over the hurt feelings of the privileged. I'm an introvert. I recommend reading Radical Candor to understand my feelings on compassionate feedback and watching Ted Lasso and Fresh Off the Boat (seasons 1-4) to understand my motivations for running a team and Lara Hogan's Resilient Management to understand my communication style.
Check out my thoughts on goals and how to run effective 1:1s and how to run emotionally intelligent engineering teams (podcast version).
Thank you for slogging through my very long README. Hopefully this helps you understand how to work better with me. Please feel free to open a PR with any suggestions!
