It’s as likely that you would be good at managing as you would be at playing the violin
Ann Libby interviewed at IDoneThis sharing an awesome idea about how to better understand the personal goals of your team:
Veronika Sonsev, CEO and cofounder of InSparq, told me about a great way she leads. First, she finds out the top three goals you want to have on your resume when you leave the company, and then the top two things you want her to say about you in a recommendation. Then every week, she does a planning session to figure out how to get you one step closer to those bullet points.
This is a great technique for any manager, but especially for managers leading a team for their first time.
