For the more abstract work, it makes it a lot easier for other people to ‘read your mind’ and for you to delegate if you share as much context as possible as Anna Shipman describes here.
Something that bears pointing out regularly: “Plus, contrary to popular belief, agile practices were not invented by the Agile movement. They predate it by many decades.”
Cath writes some very salient points about growing into leadership that on the one hand should be more widespread, but on the other hand, everybody will likely have to find out for themselves.
Also nice to see this local group of people taking the next steps in their careers if even only witnessed from afar like this.
A very recognizable story of an engineering organization finding itself and one person’s journey into leadership and back.

My foray into local politics showed me that more than anything the Grüne are a party of yuppies without much or any social face behind it.
I haven’t read this profile of the Sacklers. I’ll only read one when it is profiling them because they will be executed for their crimes.
