If you are transitioning from technical responsibility to managerial responsibility, this course is your opportunity to learn the skills you’ll need to manage effectively. Your new managerial role will require a new set of skills and knowledge in which engineers and scientists are typically not trained – managerial processes and leadership skills. One set of skills centers on the best practice managerial processes. Research has shown the most effective managers use and train their teams in systematic best practice processes. These managers add value by being “process owners.” Understanding this role improves your ability to identify, prioritize and resolve barriers to your team’s performance, help to solve problems quickly, make critical decisions effectively and protect your plans to assure implementation of your decisions and recommendations. A second focus of the course addresses the leadership skills or “core content people skills” in which technical professionals are seldom trained. These leadership and teaming skills include understanding and applying these theories for effective leadership behaviors. The course is aimed at increasing your awareness and skill level in motivating; using effective management styles and interpersonal and relationship building with your subordinates, peers and supervisor; teaching/coaching/mentoring; goal setting; delegation; time management; team building; and personal growth.
This course is available as a corporate training program and can be customized to meet your company’s needs. For more information, contact IIE Director of Continuing Education and Program Development Larry Aft, P.E., (770) 349-1130.
