What makes a manager terrible? Effective? Motivating? Deflating?
Everyone has Opinions about management, whether you are currently a people leader, individual contributor (IC), or student.
We'll set the stage with a 5-10 minute presentation on themes from "Becoming a Manager" by Linda Hill of Harvard Business School, and then open the floor up for moderated discussion.
This session will have been a success if we gain:
Ryan Skinner (he/him, LinkedIn) is a Data Science Manager currently at Proofpoint, a leading cybersecurity company serving the vast majority of the Fortune 100. Ryan runs a small team of applied data scientists and engineers consulting on hard ML problems across the company's product portfolio.
As a Minnesota native who loves snow, Ryan realized halfway through his Ph.D. that he would be forever destined to test rockets in deserts if he didn't change career plans soon. One graduation ceremony and pandemic remote-work policy later, he's back in town with his wife and two dogs, and is excited for Minnebar 17!
