As with any other profession, technologists need time to reflect on how to be the best version of themselves. Not everything can be learned just-in-time or on-the-job.
This is especially true of engineering disciplines where work relationships tend to be more transactional. In these environments, the mixture of hard and soft skills that would most allow an engineer to scale their impact are often de-emphasized by their day-to-day reality.
That is until they realize that a decade has passed, they’re still doing the same job and they could have gotten help sooner.
