As an engineering manager, you need a different skillset to that of an engineer. And while you gain influence in your organization, you lose the regular feedback loop of writing and deploying code. This is coupled with the new responsibility of line management.
You are not alone in navigating the uncertainty – engineering managers in your own organization are figuring it out too. Bring them to the series to discuss common challenges and overcome them together.
Upskilling managers is tough and finding (and sticking to) time dedicated for learning can be tougher. Bring your managers to the series and carve regular time in the calendar to learn from the industry’s top leaders on core challenges of engineering leadership.
You will learn alongside your team, giving you the opportunity to share your own experiences, and uncover unique perspectives from your colleagues on how to move your organization forward.
Leadership isn't just about managing people, it's also about how you communicate with your colleagues, influence decisions, and develop yourself.
If you're a software engineer trying to level-up your career and have more impact in your organization, this is the series for you. Invite your manager to join you and your colleagues to learn as a group and set the direction of your team.
