Welcome to another episode of the Testing Peers!
This week, join Simon, David, Russell and (semi-regular) Shey as they talk about leadership in testing.
The episode kicks off with a discussion about leadership icons outside of testing, before diving into leadership in testing.
Shey shares his journey into leadership, and how he discovered unhelpful leadership traits from his first lead.
The Peers discuss what makes a good leader, words like passion, respect, confidence, humility and more come through.
They also discuss about imposter syndrome and how most leaders do have it, referencing Matthew Syed’s work on alter-egos: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/5bLKS1rRJjbQ8nzN0pwvdnC/why-we-all-need-an-alter-ego
There’s some really useful advice in this episode, we hope you found it helpful.
Shey also mentions a video, which can be found here:
