My README.md

Having been inspired by various posts on the importance of transparency, communication and openness from the leadership side of engineering, I’ve decided to kick things off here with my own edition of a Manager’s README.

First off, welcome! If you’re reading this, you’ve either come across it by searching or you’ve been linked to it from an on-boarding document. However you got here, I think this will be a valuable first step in us working well together.

This README is an earnest, incomplete (we never stop growing) and concise guide. It sets both my expectations for you and a base-line for your expectations of me. If you like the general thinking behind this document, please create one for yourself. It can go well beyond just the working relationship with your manager and peers and provide a good jumping off point for conversations around self-awareness.
