For years I have been thinking how the skillset for IC (Individual Contributor) and Manager are not that different, especially after a certain threshold. 
While managers get training when they start a manager position, ICs never do. I believe that this is holding back a bunch of folks as they think they don't need to hone other skills.
Thanks to Normconf I finally put together my thoughts in a form of a talk, that you can find below.
If this topic resonated with you,  and want to know more, feel free to leave your email below. I might start writing some thoughts down in the near future.
