Using experiences to shape your modus operandi

In most companies, managers become leaders of people after several years of performing as an individual contributor.

A good manager makes sure to keep their experiences as an individual contributor in mind as they lead people.

Remembering how it sucks to be micromanaged.
Remembering how valuable it is to receive communication and context.
Remembering how empowering it is to be trusted.
Remembering how valuable it is to be mentored.
Remembering how good it feels to be treated with respect.

Reflect on your methods and strive to be a manager you would have appreciated.
