    Hey Tech Leads,

    A pretty odd episode for you this morning tech leads. Super curious to know how you got in the role, what you're going to when you boot up in the morning, and what you're looking for. Wish you and I could have done this one 1:1 over coffee.

    I mentioned a survey in today's episode. I'll post it at https://techleadcoaching.com/survey. Seriously: really want to know who you are!

    Hey Tech Leads,

    We're closing out a review of the fundamentals this week, tech leads. That is: the FOUR CORE! Today we're closing out the week with one of my favorite, but least discussed, topics: tracking and adjusting. This is where it all comes together--or falls apart!

    No. 81 - How's your work ethic, tech leads? 🤔

    Hey Tech Leads,

    It's Wednesday. We're 1/2 way there! We're also still getting back into our grind. Speaking of grind, I want to share this idea with you that, as you move into the tech lead role, you work ethic starts to take on a much bigger role in your success than it did when you were an individual contributor.
