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!
