Ten Management Skills for Technical Managers

A Webinar Series

Whether your technical expertise is in engineering (like mine), law, finance, technology or science, we technical folks don’t have good reputations as managers. When a technically accomplished person is promoted into management, suddenly the old skills that made us successful are not as relevant.

I’ve seen technically talented managers become perplexed by people issues, stymied by office politics and mystified by seemingly illogical decisions made by “management”. You don’t have to be perplexed, stymied or mystified. Here are the top ten skills I learned the hard way when I became a manager. And now, these skills are the topic of ten interactive webinars complete with a live event, a recording of the webinar, worksheet, and supplemental articles to support your learning. You can eliminate the frustration by learning from my mistakes, so your management competence matches your technical competence. 

BONUS: Earn 1 PDH credit for every course completed in the Ten Management Skills for Technical Managers program.

Here’s the complete list of webinars being offered in the management series.
