Bridging the Gap to Leadership: Connecting the Skills You Have with the Skills You Need

You have the technical skills, but now you’re a manager or project leader. It’s a whole new ball game. Your current skills are not likely to be enough now. Do you know what it takes to be successful? Are you developing the appropriate skills that will lead you forward? This interactive session engages participants in a thought-provoking exploration of the skills needed to bridge the gap from technical expert to manager and leader. The gap may surprise you! The results are based on personal interviews with leaders in engineering organizations and their observations of the most needed skills. 

Learning Objectives: 
• Discover the real gap between technical skills and management skills;
• Identify the most needed skills to become an effective manager; and
• Assess the difference between management and leadership and steps needed to make the leap.
