I've had chances to apply to team lead role, but I didn't consider it as an option. I like tech more than I like people.

 

At least you know yourself well enough to acknowledge that. It seems like some people figure, how hard can leading/managing people be, I'll just do everything. I think each role takes a certain set of talents/interests. But maybe someday those of us who are techies will find we want to mentor other people and move into the leadership roles.

 

Yep, management needs a different type of skill compared to development. I feel confident mentoring my colleagues, but that's just a tip of the iceberg.
