Slides from my workshop at General Assembly.
Being a good engineer does not prepare you for being a good manager. In fact, it isn’t just a promotion – it is almost a completely new job. By the end of the session, each participant will have the tools needed to begin their engineering management career.
This workshop will cover at a high-level, most of the hard and soft aspects of managing an engineering team.
We will help you navigate the HR landmines and help you properly hire and (if needed) fire employees.
Learn how to motivate employees, delegate work, set proper goals and deliver successful software projects.
Participants will work collaboratively via role playing situations and solving real world challenges.
Learn how to:
Effectively communicate with other managers and teams in the company
Structure for proper and effective employee one-on-one meetings
Set goals and drive team direction
Navigate managing previous peers
Hire, fire, review and other HR requirements.
