"Leadership is the responsibility to see those around us rise, to take care of those around us...it's not about being in charge, it's about taking care of those in our charge". 

As I read and re-read this comment from the unshakeable optimist Simon Sinek. I've come to realise that it's true when he says that we all have the ability to become the leaders we wish we had.
In my life from being the underachieving 3rd child of a teacher and doctor in the South Wales Valleys right up to today working as a senior web developer in Leeds (West Yorkshire). I've become aware of the need for us all to "see those around us rise". Because in doing so we all take on a sense of responsibility to model integrity, compassion and empathy.

This is what I try to do in all walks of life knowing that sometimes I'll mess up and sometimes I'll get it right. But most importantly of all, I'm listening and learning as much as I can.

Something we've been thinking about recently is the challenges around growing from a small start-up with 2 developers to a team of 8. Specifically how our infrastructure and approach to application development should mature with us.

Things like monitoring, benchmarks, threshold alerts and performance maintenance. All the scary stuff that comes with building products that aren't just for show but have business critical functions and processes for our clients.

The journey we're about to undertake is one I'm daunted by. But I'm also excited by all the learning opportunities that come along the way. That first step is the hardest. But I know, with the team around me, those scrolling tickers of data and statistics will soon become a language I can speak and also interpret for others.

Because why monitor stuff if you can't celebrate what your find!?
