If "Data Scientist is the sexiest job of the 21th century", what about managing them?

If "Data Scientist is the sexiest job of the 21th century", what about managing them?

Nowadays, data science teams around the world are made up of some of the smartest and most innovative people in the industry: young, talented folks, who are used to outsmarting everyone in their classes or friend groups. Managing them towards their full potential (at work and - why not - anywhere else) requires self-awareness, ego downsizing and quite an intimate relationship with impostor syndrome.

No secret recipes here, just sharing life lessons and real life experiences around moving from engineering to data science (and back), towards managing data science and engineering teams at a company that enables people to connect and build equitable and healthy relationships.
