Almost a manager in Tampa - hi there!

Hi everybody -

Maura Shortridge here - I'm a software tester at a large financial institution, and I'm currently transitioning from pure testing into a Team Lead role. I'll be managing deliverables and workload, training new staff, etc, but the hiring/firing/performance review responsibilities for my team will stay with my manager.

In DISC terms, I'm predominantly D with some I and C, almost nonexistent S.

I've been listening to the MT podcasts for about 6 months now, and have found them immensely helpful. I've been lurking around the forums for several weeks, but now that I'm actually starting to do my new job, you'll probably see me around more often.

Thanks for everytyhing I've learned so far, and I look forward to getting to know you.
