From IC to EM: How to Know if Management is Right for You

Presented by: Andrea Rhodes

“What do I want to be when I grow up?” This isn’t something that we only ask our younger-selves, but our older-selves as well. At some point in your career, you’ve probably been asked: “Have you thought about growing into the people management area?” If you have (or even if you haven’t), and you weren’t sure how to start to think about answering this question, then this session is for you!

This session will go over 12 signs that you’re ready for a management position (and 12 signs that maybe you aren’t) and what to expect when saying “yes” to an Engineering Manager position. Ultimately, this session will help give you an answer to the question: “Is a people manager what I want to be when I grow up?”
