Leadership for Engineers – A Logical and Practical Approach

The Leadership for Engineers workshop teaches skills needed to lead projects, drive innovation, and influence others in an engineering role or similar technical role. Participants learn the differences between leadership and management and how to develop specific leadership abilities that are important to engineers and technical professionals. The most important leadership traits that apply to engineering and technical project leadership responsibilities are emphasized. Participants engage in exercises that assess their individual leadership abilities and provide guidance for further development.

Case studies and real-life examples illustrate how the principles apply on the job. The Leadership for Engineers case studies and examples are drawn from a broad range of product development team environments at small, medium, and large companies serving many industries. You will also benefit from the instructor’s direct experience contributing to successful engineering projects for over 25 years.
