Everyone has potential to be a technical leader. What is a leader? John Rouda's daughter says a leader is the person in front of you in line, and she's correct in that a leader is someone to follow. In this talk, John will explore how to lead those to your right and to your left from any level, not only as the “boss.” He will also share a story of failed leadership and explain the biology behind leadership. Leadership is about training, there is no magic formula, but there are ways to train your leadership muscles, just like you would train your body. You'll also learn how leadership is a process without an end.
