I can't believe I hadn't come across this essay until now: "Inside the Mirrortocracy" (http://carlos.bueno.org/2014/06/mirrortocracy.html)
It's full of wonderful. 😻
The follow-up, "Refactoring the Mirrortocracy" (http://carlos.bueno.org/2014/06/refactoring.html) is pretty good, too. Good advice on hiring and biases.
It's sad to think that these essays are 4 years old but not much, if anything, has changed.
