Moving into management is a huge career step. Is it the right step for you?
There are numerous reasons you might not want to move into management. I walk through a few things to consider.
It can take years to be a great manager. What does it take to be a moderately fine manager?
Helping others is great, but it doesn't hold a candle to owning things. I walk through ownership vs helping, and why your kids are bad at doing the dishes.
I've made mistakes in various ways. It can be embarrassing, but mistakes are also the best way to learn.
If you're in management, you'll eventually manage people who know more than you do about their field. How can you be a useful manager to them?
