Interesting discussions. In particular, I like to delve into the metamorphoses of the topic, Best Advice to something important – that we grow up hearing from our elders, teachers and well-wishers. It is the common sense of doing things. But is common sense really common? We got some glimpses of an answer ...

This is an interesting topic. Christopher is very humble, his post is very good – including citing the ASCE Source. In the Source, the young engineer named Principe has come up with 5 keys to develop good engineering work relationship. Some of such awareness seems to have its origin in the grass root ...

The interests on this topic are overwhelming – indicating how the largest of all engineering disciplines – the civil engineers (CE) love their profession. I am tempted to add further to my earlier postings. Most of a country's developmental and repair/maintenance budget pass through the CE hands ...

In my reckoning, there are plenty of books and websites on leadership (the recommendations of Kush and Chris are some of them). One has to glean from them what are right and worthy. Further to my discussion posted earlier, in my Leadership and Management piece, I came up with the recommendations of five ...

Very glad that the topic has inspired some very enthusiastic responses from our young colleagues – with infos that perhaps many of us did not know. If one attempts to see for a moment, from the premise of portrayal of civil engineers to engineers as portrayers in mass media – in literary and creative ...

Interesting discussions. Here is my take. Public perceptions of civil engineers, therefore portrayal, are often (not always) limited to such events as: when a great civil engineering work is commissioned (but most often credit goes to politicians who cut the ribbon, or to bureaucrats and others); or ...

Indeed, a leader's accomplishment excels when he or she is able to ride over the temptation of being bossy. Thanks Tirza for bringing out the issue. Here are some lines from my Leadership and Management piece: . . . A leader should be strong to articulate ideas and visions to arouse emotions in ...

A book: The Leadership Mystique – a user's manual for the human enterprise by MK de Vries (Prentice Hall 2001) is a fascinating read. I have a piece: Leadership and Management. Also, there were multiple discussions on Engineering Leadership posted in 2017 (March – July). They were quite interesting ...

Make a lot of walks to get healthy and don't read that much but save yourself some until you're grown up – there came the advice from the Giant (Albert Einstein; 1879 – 1955) to his young son. Even for a son looking up to his father, it is not that difficult to pursue what Einstein advised – but it is ...

As a quick thought – it seems to me passing comments and opinions anonymously is hardly a sound practice. The reason is that anonymity has an aura of irresponsibility.
