As technical professionals, we spend years in school and then years studying for licensing exams, and we spend our entire careers pouring over code books and technical manuals. By the time we reach management positions, we are technical experts and excellent project managers . . . but we never learned how to manage people. As it turns out, soft skills are just as important as technical skills, and in the current world climate, much of these management activities are now happening at a distance. This session will offer a forum to discuss various management skills and techniques that will help us all improve our management skills, especially in a remote environment.
- Discuss various techniques to be a better manager.
- Hear real experiences (good and bad) and discuss the best management approach.
- Discover soft skills that are surprisingly as important as our technical skills.
- Engage in an open discussion to learn from each other.
