Short post today. I really worry sometimes about (some) people in tech. I see people putting themselves under so much pressure to be the perfect manager or leader. They nobly shield their team from dysfunction. They attempt superhuman feats of managing up. They filter every word—juggling the dual demands of caring for their teams, and doing the company’s bidding. They bottle their emotions to keep a veneer of being professional. They try to be the best coaches and mentors they can be.
