Be A Good Manager By Letting People Learn And Grow

The Skills Of A Manager
Unfortunately, the most important skill of a manager is vastly different from that of a technical lead. The technical lead’s primary responsibility is to act as a source of information for other people in the organization. He knows tons of stuff, so other people come to him if they have any questions about “what to do now” or “how to do it”. He also helps by giving input into the overall plan (from a technical perspective) or may even be responsible for the direction that the company takes. However, he does not have to worry about the most important skill that a manager needs: the ability to motivate people. Without this skill, all his other skills are completely useless. I think an old saying applies very well here: “A plan is useless if there is no one to follow it”.
