Act like a leader


I spent the past few days binge reading the book “Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader” by Herminia Ibarra. I rarely read books on leadership, partly because I identify myself first as an IC (individual contributor) and a tech expert, not a leader, a role I consider as more talking than working, and partly because I always think it is a waste of time to think about leadership when I’m not even a leader. I’d rather spend more time pushing my code to production and delivering a solution. This book completely changes my naive perception of how leadership develops and motivates me to act now.
