Technical employees are a special breed. But you already knew that.
To be honest, people who choose tech as a career – and this is pretty accurate of any tech discipline – are far from clock-punching 9-5’ers. Oh, they may work most days 9-5, but technical people are always thinking, planning, strategizing, and looking for a better way. It’s just their nature.
But working with, managing, and leading technical people can be a challenge. They have opinions, drivers, and motivators, and they know they have options, too. They want to work, fix, build, and make everything better, but they don’t want to be stifled.
Add to the above the simple fact that while technical people share a lot of traits, everyone is also very different. Putting a highly technical person in a pre-defined box usually results in eventually having an ex-employee (and a grateful competitor). One size does not fit all.
