People are hard, so why are they called “soft skills”? Much like technical skills, there is both science and art, theory and experience, to becoming good at leading, managing, coaching, mentoring & developing people. In this workshop, you'll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.
Host: Lara Hogan (Co-founder, Wherewithall)
When you switch from an individual contributor role to a manager role, you might find yourself floating in a sea of uncertainty. What does success look like as a manager? How do you know if you’re doing a good job or not, with such a long feedback loop between your actions and their outcome? Lara helps you articulate what you uniquely bring to management and practise a tonne of leadership skills.
Host: Pat Kua (Chief Scientist, N26)
Congratulations! You’re now a Tech Lead? But what are you supposed to do differently than when you were just a software engineer? In this course, you'll explore the definition of a Tech Lead, understand the different skills required to be an effective Tech Lead and learn some tools that you can immediately apply in your own team.
Writing or speaking about your work can make you better connected, better paid, and more respected as a leader in tech. It’s also a great way to inspire innovation and influence how your team and organization operates. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to get over the hurdles of sharing your ideas, articulate and own your unique perspective, and gain confidence communicating your expertise both at work and in your community.
What if you could get at the heart of what was important to your coworkers and stakeholders? What if you could navigate difficult conversations and get buy-in on the things you cared about? You'd be able to break through the friction and miscommunication that slow everything down. You'd be able to build alignment on shared goals, even when there's conflict. You'd be able to lead, even without authority.
