Can I run an analogy by you?
For my upcoming leadership book I’m trying to figure out if the analogy between learning to program and learning to lead is helpful.
Would you take a minute and hit REPLY with an answer these questions?
There’s no right/wrong answer – I just want to see if what ideas/insights the analogy brings.
On learning to program
Question 1A: When you were first learning to program, how did you describe programming to non-programmers?
Question 1B: How would you describe programming to a non-programmer today?
On learning to manage
Question 2A: When you were first managing people, how did you describe it to a non-manager?
Question 2B: How would you describe managing to a non-manager today?
Looking for meaning
Question 3: What similarities do you see between your two transitions?
Question 4: What realizations did you have?
Looking forward to hearing back!
