Take the example of Reema, an ace software developer. After a brilliant academic career, she joined the application development group of a medium size software company. Her programming skills and her ability to grasp clients’ needs quickly brought her recognition. Her seniors started giving her more responsibilities. She was soon catapulted into leading several teams. It was as if the company had no one else capable enough.
She had no problem with technical challenges. But leading teams brought her entirely different kind of challenges. She had to plan projects or assess old plans. She had to breakup work and parcel it out to individuals. She had to assess people and resolve conflicts. She had to communicate with the clients.
Neither she nor her company had planned anything of this sort. Soon Reema was frustrated. She found another job.
