Full Session without Abstracts
If you ask anyone how to be a successful engineer or a top engineering manager, they will tell you
that you need good communication skills. However, they will rarely tell you how to develop them. In
this session, you will learn practical strategies that can be used on a daily basis to incrementally
improve your communication skills including your ability to communicate with others. Implementing
these strategies will put you on the inside track to becoming a top engineering manager because you
will be in the small percentage of engineers who can communicate effectively on a regular basis.
If you follow the strategies provided in this session, this one session alone can have a massively
positive impact on your engineering career and life.
In this session you will learn how to:
Understand the different forms of communication and when to use each of them,
Communicate effectively with team members,
Say things in a way that will help you get the response you are seeking,
Listen more effectively (the key to communication), and
Be responsive so people want to communicate with you.
