Steven’s Signature Presentation – “Managing the Technologists Who Manage Your Technology”
Every engineer and technical manager wants to be more successful. Most technical managers struggle to find the balance between managing too much and managing too little. And technical competency does not guarantee that the technical person will self-manage effectively. So most technical managers struggle to find a way to effectively manage their technical teams.
Organizations generally want more from engineers than just techncial competence. Organizations also want their technical teams to display competency in what has become known as the “soft skills”, the “interpersonal people skills” that are not taught in school.
In this presentation Steven will cover the following:
• The Ten Pitfalls to avoid… the Ten Pitfalls that block engineers from collaborating effectively
• Developing the ability to understand others
• The ability to contribute ideas to the greater idea
• Ability to be more than technical
