Secrets to Advancing Your Engineering Career
What Are the Critical Success Factors to a Successful Long-Term Engineering Career?
Facilitated by Steven Cerri
Class size is limited to 24 participants
Surveys and research have shown that there are certain traits, behaviors, and actions that technical managers identify and value as qualities that lead to promotion. Whether an engineer is seeking to advance along the technical or management ladder, these behaviors are critical to success in any organization. This course defines those nine traits and indicates what they “look like” to the organization. Participants will learn how to behave in ways that allow them to contribute significantly to the organization as they move toward becoming Fully Integrated Engineers™; professionals with both technical and interpersonal “people” skills.
This interactive workshop is divided into three major sections. The first section addresses those highly valued traits and behaviors that pertain to the individual and the personal sense of who he/she is within the organization. The second section addresses those highly valued traits and behaviors that pertain to the team relationship between the engineer / technical professional and their work group. The third section addresses those highly valued traits and behaviors that pertain to the engineer and the organization as a whole.
In this way, this workshop provides the framework for the engineer/technical professional to contribute fully either as a technical individual contributor or as someone progressively moving into management.
