Managing people is an important skill

Managing people is a skill.

The other day, I was talking to someone at a tech company.

He has a technical background as a software developer.

He was lamenting about the fact that his manager, who has less technical knowledge than him, makes more money than him.

It’s important for all of us to understand that managing people is a skill.

Though, managing may fall into a “soft” skill and may mean the person is not as “technically” smart, it’s still a skill.

Respect people for that ability, it’s a much needed skill in any organization.
