Notes from Books

Radical Condor

The book gives a simple framework based on 2 dimensions: Care Personally and Challenge Directly:

  • Ruinous empathy: high on Care Personally and low on Challenge Directly
  • Obnoxious aggression: low on Care Personally and high on Challenge Directly
  • Manipulative insincerity: low on both dimensions
  • Radical candor: high on both dimensions

Debugging Teams: Better Productivity Through Collaboration

  • Software engineering is a team sport
  • Leadership is about removing roadblocks, not giving orders
  • Professional social skills are at least as critical as technical skills: Humility, Respect, Trust.
