This course is a hands-on experiential learning workshop. It combines personal strengths and experience with team processes to make timely, effective leadership decisions. The result can be an organization or team culture that continually improves its leadership decision making and problem solving, and its ability to prevent or resolve issues before they become crises.

Seminar Description

The culture in many engineering offices and projects encourages a linear, top down process, often based on technical expertise to solve problems and make decisions. While this may be adequate for some technical situations, the majority of project problems and conflicts result from a lack of communication and teamwork and a reluctance to invite and use the ideas of others in making good decision.

Leadership is the process of influencing the actions and perhaps the thinking of others toward goal achievement.  It requires the ability to understand and meet the needs of those you depend on to achieve the best results.

This course is a hands-on experiential learning workshop.  It combines personal strengths and experience with team processes to make timely, effective leadership decisions. The result can be an organization or team culture that continually improves its leadership decision making and problem solving, and its ability to prevent or resolve issues before they become crises.
