With that in hand, you are able to map the abilities you wish to develop and the areas that want consideration. Any good manager will need to see you, the group and the corporate develop,” she says. And if you’re not completely sure, don’t fully hand over the steering wheel, says Davit Balagyozyan, Software Engineer at Stedi. If you have a career path (i.e. an engineer may wish to become a PM), then you want to both push for it, push back, or be transparent that you’re undecided. It’s okay to be undecided but in case you are sending mixed indicators, a manager will attempt to ‘decide’ your subsequent step for you,” he says.
