Workshop tickets on sale now: Engineering better hiring practices

Leading engineering teams for new managers (crash course)

Inspire, motivate, and grow your team. Become an effective engineering manager and leader.

There is strong demand for capable software engineering leaders everywhere from small start up companies to large scale well-established firms. And most of them not only want managers to meet and deliver outcomes, they want a leader who has the right set of skills to create a healthy team environment that enables growth and longevity.

Many assume leadership skills are innate. This is not true. Leadership consists of established best practices that can be learned by all.

This workshop will prepare you to lead with empathy and confidence, with the application of everyday leadership. You will learn a set of tools to put your new knowledge into practice immediately.

This workshop is most suited to new, current, and prospective engineering managers and team leads. If you have been managing for less than a couple of years, have a yearning to continuously improve, want to lead your team to the next level of effectiveness, contribute, and learn from like-minded people, this workshop is for you!

Workshop structure

The workshop will have less than ten people so we can really explore the material. Through a series of presentations, group discussions, and scenario-based sessions, you will work with others, share experiences, and learn together.

Like all our events, this workshop is covered by our code of conduct and joining us assumes your agreement to be bound by the code.

Getting to know you

Before the workshop, we will schedule 30 minutes to learn more about you, your organisation, and your team. We will also add you to a Slack to get to know the other attendees, and for us to announce any updates or answer any of your questions.

Our Australian residents live on, and benefit from, the colonised lands of the Boon Wurrung, the Wurundjeri, and the Darkinjung. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of these lands and recognise their enduring connection to land, waters, and culture. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present.

We are grateful we share this land today. We hold sorrow for the costs of that sharing, and we hope for a reconciliation to bring us to a state of equity, justice, and partnership together.
