Tanaka Mutakwa Ask Me Anything

Hi Gracie

Thank you for the feedback. Glad you loved the episode.

I think one misconception that early-career developers frequently have about their managers is that their managers are just there for administrative purposes and to assign them work. A good manager will support and genuinely care about about an early-career developer's learning and growth. They will mentor and support them through their career journey.

As a manager of people I wish more people were willing to build trust based relationships with their managers. Being open about their struggles and areas they want to grow in, so their managers can provide them with the appropriate support.
