We are a community-based, open-sourced network of tech leads who show up to help each other through in person workshops, coaching, and other contributions. All free and volunteer based.
Be a coach or get coaching from a more experienced tech lead.
Peer to peer, 1:1, volunteer based coaching is the cornerstone of what we do.
It's an enriching experience for the coach and the tech lead.
If you're in the Los Angeles area join our Tech Lead Workshops - Los Angeles Meetup group.
Through this group you can also join our Tech Lead Tuesday morning rush hour conference call even if you're not in LA.
Our meetups are based on open source case studies, so you can start your own group, whether it's on Meetup in another city or at your office.
We do a daily podcast covering a daily topic for tech leads and a community update. Search for Tech Lead Coaching all major podcasting platforms and on Anchor.

If you're reading this in the States or Europe, you survived St. Patrick's day and made it to another Monday. Let's make the most of the week together :-).
This is something I think about a lot, but don't talk about enough -- coaching is a complicated word
Let's ask this again: are really sure you want to talk through that tech lead door?
Taking initiative (action) is one of the key capabilities we advocate for. Take some anxiety out of it with the Success Cycle.
In Wednesday's podcast, I say LEAD FROM THE FRONT!
In Tuesday's podcast, we literally take a few pages out of Pat Kua's book and explore one new tech lead's journey.
In Monday's podcast, we're talking through what most tech leads actually do day to day. What do you think? Did we get it right?
In today's podcast, we ask what your mindset is about being a tech lead. Possible answers could be no, yes, maybe, or I thought so. But the real questions are whether you're waiting for someone to give you permission to be a tech lead or whether you're going to push through and stick with it.
