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 to management, suddenly the skills that made us successful are not as relevant. It's a whole new ball game and whole new set of skills. 

I know because I lived it. The structured thinking that made me successful as an engineer left me perplexed by personality conflicts, mystified by office politics and frustrated by ineffective communications. And my staff were equally frustrated. That’s why I created this webinar series. 

In ten one-hour webinars, I bundle the top ten skills that made the most difference for me as a manager and leader.

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

This webinar series is designed for you...

Particularly, if you have a technical background and moved into or wish to move into management. Or, if you have staff who would benefit from enhanced management training. 

This is an easy and affordable way to get the knowledge you or they need to get more done with less frustration.

The series includes...

  • 10 Pre-recorded webinars taught by Shelley Row, PE, CSP. Watch on your own time!
  • Worksheets and companion summaries on each topic.
