There’s a monumental paradox about moving from a maker to a manager:

The skills necessary to become a successful engineer (programmer, technician or “maker” of any kind) ARE NOT the same skills necessary to become a successful engineering manager. As an engineer you’re evaluated on what you accomplish. But as an engineering manager, you’re evaluated on the accomplishments of an entire team. Effective management is about creating a productive environment, equipping your team, and making decisions that allow other become successful.

And this difference is skills sets has become a stumbling block for countless makers aspiring to move into a managerial role. They either find themselves getting repeatedly passed up for promotions, or if they move into a leadership role, they’re ineffective and end up getting demoted.
