Leading a growing team is exciting – it means you’ve earned the trust to expand out and your team is able to take on new, bigger challenges. It also means your team might outgrow you, and you need new lead developers to help things scale. Congratulations, you’ve just entered a totally new scope of leadership, leading a lead!
Leading other leads is an exciting and scary step to take. It’s now your responsibility to set expectations and goals, provide feedback, and support not just a team, but a new lead. This talk will highlight lessons learned from Monika’s own transition to leading leads. She’ll talk about challenges in reframing your role, as well as the opportunities for your own growth when your team member has a team to lead of their own.
