In this episode, Tracy Jasper, a manager at Hubspot, talks about her experience transitioning from an individual contributor to a people manager in the tech industry. Tune in to hear about the challenges Tracy faced, as well as the people management skills she’s had to develop.

That said, becoming a people manager is often a strategic move because, to progress to Director and VP level, one almost always needs to have this experience under their belt.
