Description: As we scientists and engineers advance in our careers, many of us move on to roles where we manage a project, a team, or even an entire business unit. To be effective, we find we must learn many new skills that were not part of our technical training. Effective leaders often find that some habits and patterns of thinking they developed during their technical training don’t work so well when leading a group to achieve challenging goals. In this webinar we will review some important principles that address some of the toughest questions that technical managers face: What’s most important for keeping a project on schedule? How do good leaders make hard decisions? What do you do when there’s no good answer? Is the maxim ‘Ask for forgiveness, not permission’ actually good advice? If you are a manager, or if you aspire to become one, this webinar will give you insight that will help you be more effective. If you haven’t started your industry career yet, this will be excellent preparation for your first interviews!
