I've found the DEV community to be amazing. Lots of empathetic, enthusiastic, and generous people.
I have also found it to be quite tailored towards Software Development (duh, read the name), which is great.
I think that there is a space in this great community for people, like myself, who have come from a Development background and have progressed their careers into Leadership roles.
I have been posting articles from that angle, and reading what I can find from others. But it would be great to start promoting a little corner of DEV to be a bit more inclusive towards people who are at this stage in their career path.
What do you think?

Would you like to moderate the leadership tag?
Oh wow, that would be an honor.
A thought of caution though, since I don't know whats involved in moderating a tag, I assume moderation is not a blocking but an enhancement type of activity? Meaning: people won't be blocked from posting if I haven't got around to moderate their post?
Yep. We think of tag moderation as progressive enhancement. We don't levy big responsibility or expectations on anyone. It's more of a nice to have.
The program is still somewhat adhoc, but growing in organization gradually.
Excellent, count me in!
I think progressing towards practical leadership would be mean someone starts something a project or an incentive takes up the lead and people start following him while repeating his steps to learn and advance their skills. Eventually a service or a product develops that serves and leadership has fulfilled it's purpose.
