As a manager who has recently transitioned from an engineering position, you may be feeling the pressure to constantly stay ahead of the curve when it comes to new technologies and trends. However, this mindset can sometimes do more harm than good. In this talk, I'll discuss the pitfalls of always striving to be on the cutting edge, as well as the benefits of taking a more measured approach. I'll also cover practical strategies for striking a balance between leadership and staying relevant as a technical expert, such as focusing on foundational skills, cultivating a culture of learning, and embracing failure as a learning opportunity. By the end of the talk, you'll have a better understanding of how to stay both relevant and effective, without burning yourself out in the process.
