You’ve worked really hard in your technical field and you work well in a team.  Congratulations - you’ve now been promoted to manager! It’s time to think about how you’re going to leverage your skills and experience to be more highly regarded in a leadership capacity. Almost every new leader comes with more finely honed technical skills than non-technical leadership skills. The good news is that these skills can be learned and developed.

  1. Why IQ alone is not a predictor of career success
  2. The “other intelligence” …. EQ
  3. The essential EQ skills for success in technical professionals
  4. What’s the difference between “Rising Stars” and “Falling Stars” when it comes to workers?
  5. Value of Street Smarts vs. School Smarts?
