Traversing the Org Chart
Like many techies, Kris spent her career studiously avoiding going into management. Then over the course of three years, she embarked on two radical experiments: The first was to make the leap from an individual contributor on a tech team in a traditional hierarchical company to the person in charge. Then a year and a half later, she took a role as an "all rounder" in a hip startup dedicated to staying as flat and managerless as possible. She'll walk you through the lessons she learned along the way, like: What do managers actually *do* all day long? Is "good manager" an oxymoron? And are you really better off without one? (Spoiler: holacracy isn't all it's cracked up to be!)
