I’ve been thinking about coaching. More and more of my day job is about making other designers do their best work instead of me doing what I have started to call IC-type work, where IC stands for Individual Contributor.
I’ve been reading a book about coaching I picked up in the local bookstore. It’s not that good but I agree with its premise, which is that:
- constant top-down direction is a sign of an immature organisation
- interdependence between parties is a sign of a mature one
Looking forward to learning more about being a manager #newchallenges.
