For years, I have kept on the technical track work-wise. This has been partly imposed, partly by choice. What this implies is that I have become a guru in several areas and respected at least by peers for this expertise – BUT – that I have not always gotten management recognition for my work because it wasn’t “management”. Well, that is going to change soon. I am, for the first time, switching tracks. Many colleagues are frankly surprised that I would forgo an existence of godliness to the field and invisibility to upper management but, at almost 42, if I am gonna make an attempt, I think it is now or never. Now I am gonna attempt to stay technical too so no worries, right? Why did I feel this was worth a post? Because, I find it a bit sad that there is an all-or-nothing here. But on the other hand, I think that the two profiles of technical guru and manager are often incompatible. That being said, I am hoping that my leadership qualities in technical matters will benefit my employees when I am being a leader in management as well. Like I told my new manager, I just jumped out of the plane – I hope the parachute opens!
