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.
