I didn't want to be a manager anymore - and the world didn't end
Here are a few key lessons I learned from this post:
- If you’re interested in a new role, make sure you tell the right people about it in 1:1 conversations. Ask for advice and mentorship for the skills required for the role you want to be in.
- Get to know yourself and what you like best. Learn as much as you can about aspects other than engineering, like product, design, compliance, support, sales, technical writing, etc.
- Think about what you like & dislike in your current role and how those aspects would change if you moved to a different one.
- Understand the aspects of the new role that you know little about and figure out how you can get more exposure to them.
