Welcome to Issue 166!

"The best design leaders are like chefs. They might not be chopping carrots, but they’re always in the kitchen, they taste the food before it goes out, and they’re damn good with a knife. This is the type of person you want to scale a team around (not managers who haven’t done production work in 3-4 years)." – Alex Schleifer from Airbnb

This struck a chord with me. Seeing this pop up in many conversations now. So glad that the industry is leaning more towards craft and practicing design leaders aren't being looked down upon.
