STT e22 - Management 101: Crisis management and avoidance

I'm finally starting my leadership series. This first talk is for you, if you think you might ever want to go into Management in Big Tech.

I cover some of the things that you might not expect or be prepared for, that I've run across in my career, with colorful examples. Topics I cover include:

* Different management styles, and how everyone feels uncomfortable at some point
* How things can surprise you when you're least expecting them
* Good and bad ways to handle crisis situations
* How to handle getting blamed for stuff that's not your fault
* How to try to derail crises before they happen
* Some general tips on getting to know your org

There are many more episodes of material to cover even on basic management. But this is a pretty decent introduction to the way I think about some of the core challenges of management and leadership.
