As a technical leader/product/program/project manager/person of influence/(insert your job title here) you’re expected to mentor team members and provide feedback to them. You’re called on to employ leadership traits like empathy and have tough conversations with people on your team without the benefit of an org chart to back you up. So, how do you lead when you don’t have the formal authority? How do you influence colleagues and team members? How do you get sh!t done when you’re not “the boss”?
Relationships, that’s how. It’s all about the people.
Join us for four ½-day sessions. We’ll help you leverage your emotional intelligence, understand your spheres of influence, and work with and through others to get good work done.
