Good points — I like the examples on how to make things concrete.

The dynamics of being a principal engineer are a bit different but your advice is valuable there as well. As I deal with team members and my management chain I’ve had good results framing a conversation around “what would you like to see me do more of? what would you like me to do less of?”

It is still open-ended, so I can improve by using concrete examples. But it takes the conversation in a direction of working on balance together and makes it ok to give me comments.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
