Foundations of Tech Leadership

According to a CareerBuilder study, only 40% of new Engineering leaders receive formal training when they become a boss for the first time. The rest are forced to get scrappy to quickly equip themselves with new skills, techniques, and mindsets to effectively transition into their new roles.

This workshop was designed to fill this gap; providing tactical techniques and resources for both new and seasoned technical leaders - regardless of your title!!

Topics include: Purposeful leadership Time management Prioritizing the right things Role definition & clarity Social styles Giving feedback Career conversations 1:1s Coaching Diversity & inclusion Recruiting, interviewing, & onboarding Relationships (politics) of management Authentic leadership

Interactive group exercises will help you practice these new ideas and techniques in a safe and engaging environment.

You will leave with new perspectives on technical leadership, as well as handouts and plenty of resources to grow and further develop skills in your daily work.
