Purpose and Background
The biggest hurdle that most civil engineers and technical professionals face in their quest to become successful managers is a lack of confidence. As an engineering manager, you’ll need to build your expertise, present in front of stakeholders, and lead by example. To do these things in a powerful way, you’ll need to be confident in your knowledge and abilities, and not just sometimes, all of the time. You’ll also need to engage with people effectively to grow into a powerful engineering leader.
In this session, you’ll be given specific actions that you can take on a daily basis to build your confidence, develop your public speaking skills, and learn high leverage leadership tactics. These strategies will help you build authority in your field, improve your confidence and effectiveness as an author and presenter, and maximize your relationships with the people you work with.
