I’m glad Google did this research. Many people look to them for leadership in these areas and would be misguided into believing that being technical means you will be a good leader.
These aren’t news to anyone else, but I am surprised how the “Eight Habits of Highly Effective Google Managers” are considered a shock to the former VP of People Operations.
Shouldn’t it have been a case of “Finally! This is what i’ve been saying all along” :)
