Good Leader, Bad Leader

As I reflect on my own leadership path, and the lessons I’ve learned via both managing teams as well as observing leaders across companies, I wanted to capture some of these lessons as a primer for new leaders.

I’m a big fan of Ben Horowitz, especially his book The Hard Thing About Hard Things, so I modeled this post after Good Product Manager, Bad Product Manager — thanks for the inspiration Ben!
