To those who manage others, are managed by others, work in teams, work with
engineers/SW developers:

Please share your most important tools, techniques, lessons learned, battles
won/lost, how you gained knowledge/insight/seasoning from same.

We who are new [or have returned] to managing, we beseech your collective

For example, por ejemplo, par exemple, zum Beispiel, per esempio:

The challenges of managing the strong personalities we like to hire is a
side-topic in its own right.
e.g., how to balance the tendency toward "ownership" of docs by a lead
writer with department guidelines, best practices, the compelling need for
"good enough" QA [perfectionism kills!], and so on.

How to juggle the chronic workload/schedule two-step, i.e., how to make best
use of [superficially] slack periods while preparing for the girded-loins
onslaught of slipped-schedule crunch weeks [or months].

and anything else that occurs to you...

But, if you want something new to talk about, then it's up to you to bring
it up.
If no one brings up something new, the old stuff will continue to cycle,
because no one wants to stop talking.
