In software development, the two typical career paths are management and architect/systems design. Both of these share a common transitional step from development to the manager or architect role, a lead position. Time spent as a developer allows one to master technical skills that are useful as a leader, but being a technical lead requires skills beyond those of a developer.

This talk will explore the interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills that the most successful leads have cultivated, and how to go about expanding your own skill set to include these.

I liked that Marion discussed real-world conversations between team leads and developers, particularly better language we can use. I would've liked the talk to be faster paced and with higher energy.
