How NOT to lead geeks

Alexander Kjerulf in this article identifies 10 mistakes that managers make when leading geeks. Things like recognitions, training, communication, decision-making are considered in his list of mistakes:

  • Downplay training
  • Give no recognition
  • Plan too much overtime
  • Use management-speak
  • Try to be smarter than the geeks
  • Act inconsistent
  • Ignore the geeks
  • Make decisions without consulting them
  • Don’t give them tools
  • Forget that geeks are creative workers

However I would say those may be the mistake for managing any professionals, not just IT geeks.
