About This Course

  • Are you a technical leader and feeling stressed by the challenges of leadership?
  • What do you do when senior management asks you to prioritize something that doesn’t work technically?
  • As a technical leader, do you feel frustrated with your ability to speak the language of leadership?
  • Do you find yourself avoiding tough conversations with your team because it’s easier to just let issues slide under the rug?

Only 10% of technical leaders see the full picture of what’s going on in their organizations. Of those, only 1% actually know how to engage in cross-functional leadership

The field of technical leadership is exploding, but in most cases, technical individuals with leadership aspirations still have to rely on their own trial and error in developing their skillset. In this course that has been developed over several years of coaching, participants will learn a non-technical framework for introspection, communication and understanding of the various facets of leadership using Better Managed Development as an overarching theme.

This program will give you the tools and mindset you need to become the leader that executive management and their directs can rely on to be a rockstar manager.
