Overview

Engineers needs to recognise themselves as leaders. Besides technical precision, engineers need to acknowledge that there is a humanistic element to their discipline.

The 1-day workshop will address the mismatch between engineers’ professional identity and traditional notions of leadership, and three orientations to engineering leadership: technical mastery, collaborative optimisation, and organisational innovation. Technical leadership skills to foster collaboration and communication are applied based on scenarios, with equal emphasis on the framing and rhetorical strategies used by adaptive technical leaders.
