Hey Tech Leads,
Just thought I’d share some links with you–in case you’re following me here (hope you are, this is the place to be).
For the Wednesday update, I shared some information about mental toughness from Psychology Today. Interestingly, you don’t need to be mentally tough to be a tech lead, and some mental tough people are terrible tech leads.
So it’s neither a necessary nor sufficient condition.
HOWEVER, there are some significant advantages if you can develop mental toughness.
Read my post on Substack (it’s free for everyone today!): Are you a mentally tough tech lead?
