Soft Skills for Engineers

Soft Skills for Engineers


Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.

Over and over we're inundated with the mythos of the 10x engineer - the wizard who sits in a dark corner, mashing keys and saving the business day after day.I believe in the 10x engineer - but I don't think this vision of him or her is the correct one. Instead, the 10x engineer I have in mind is rarely in a dark corner, rarely mashing keys for hours at a time. Yes, of course, this engineer can code - but coding is a 1x activity. Instead, this engineer has soft skills - leadership, empathy, charisma - and they use these skills to make their 10x impact.In this presentation I'll describe why these skills will get you to a 10x faster than coding will and we'll practice some exercises that improve leadership, empathy and charisma.
