Dear New Tech Lead

  1. Code is still your job. Writing the code isn’t. Not all of it, at least.
  2. Actually, your team is your job. Enable them to do great work.
  3. Give the interesting work away. Do the stuff nobody else wants.
  4. Welcome interruption. Limit how often you interrupt others.
  5. The buck stops with you.
