FULL DISCUSSION
 

I've had several bad ones but one good one that really stood out.

  • Was always extremely patient among developers who can sometimes be stubborn and egotistical when it comes to technology.

  • Knew how to keep calm and weather a storm when things were on fire; co-ordinated our small team effectively under pressure.

  • Encouraged developers to get involved in things that didn't involve a laptop, like networking and social activities. This allowed us to see the big picture and get more involved in our work.

  • Didn't value his personal projects over what the team was doing. Bad managers do this sometimes.

  • Knew the difference between a "stable" technology and a "trendy" technology.

  • Was very forgiving of mistakes, which sometimes happen.
