"My job doesn’t exist so that I can know more, or so that I can tell others what to do. My job exists to cultivate a healthy and safe environment for amazing people to do the best work of their lives. My job is to make sure that people feel supported and have a clear path to success and growth. And when things get murky or confusing, it’s my job to assist in finding clarity again, to reframe the conversation"

— Great thoughts for those of us transitioning to a manager role, from my friend Cap Watkins | Sr. Product Design Manager at Etsy.
