Very practical advice for managers and leads. Really good talk.

The talk was too high-level for me, focusing on broad categories like "trust" and "discomfort". The talk also included some "inspiring stories" of good managers, but those people were totally outside of the industry and I didn't feel their stories added much value, particularly given the short time-frame of the talk.

I was hoping for some very specific pointers about managing people in tech. And while I know that the high-level concepts transcend industry, a talk that was geared towards tech management would have been a better fit for this conference, in my opinion.
