Do you really want to be a tech lead?
There are maybe four answers to this question: no, yes, maybe, or I thought so.
The first two are pretty straightforward. Just make sure you’re not saying “no” because you’re waiting for someone else to give you permission to take some leadership.
The third possible answer is kind of the same. “Maybe” could mean all kinds of things, so get in touch with us!
The fourth is the most problematic because, as a tech lead, all of us go through rough patches. The question is: are you going to come out of it and stick with the tech lead role? Or give up and drop back into an individual contributor role again.
The choice is yours, but we’re here to support you!
