When looking at their career path most people are eventually faced with the question: Do I want to be in management? For some this is a no brainer and they can easily say, “Yes, sign me up!” or “No, I’d rather be an individual contributor.” Then there are others who just aren’t sure. For years I was in the “individual contributor” camp and I thought I always would be. Then, as different opportunities came my way, I started to waver in my decision. As our lives change, so may our career aspirations. So whether you have never been a manager before or you have managed a team in what now feels like a past life, there are questions to ask yourself to see if management would be a good fit for you. This sessions guides you through one technical writer’s journey from individual contributor to manager and all of the introspective questions asked along the way.
