Step Up from Manager to Leader with Vision, Strategy, Culture, Purpose, Influence, Delegation, Communication and more
Are you an Engineering Manager that wants to lead, not just manage? Do you want to take your leadership to the next level?
Leadership for Engineers will give you powerful and practical insights into the various dimensions of leadership: from Culture to Recruitment - from Strategy to Resilience - in an engineering context.
Whether you're a CEO or a Team Leader, you'll discover how to inspire those around you with a powerful Vision and how to create an environment in which everyone strives to be and do their best.
You'll learn not just how to get everyone behind the vision you want to achieve, but critically, how to deal with the challenges, obstacles and failures that you will inevitably meet if your goals are worthwhile.

A basic premise of the course is that good leaders are self-aware - you need to understand people before you can lead them, and you need to understand yourself before you can understand others. So the course devotes a section to exploring how your mind really works, how to keep it in shape and how to use it effectively.
The next section deals with using your self-knowledge to energise those around you - team and organisation - creating relationships that are positive, collaborative and that get things done.
This course challenges the accepted wisdom on a number of Leadership topics:
Delegation is frequently misunderstood and misapplied even at the highest levels
Uncertainty is a fact of life which should be embraced not fought
Leaders are there to serve and support their team - not the other way around
Boundaries are critical - saying No is as important as saying Yes
Disagreement is crucial to finding the best solution
Work gets easier when you focus on what you give, not what you get
Leaders are responsible for the environment, not their people
You can build a well-oiled machine out of robots, but not people
plus many more...
Applying the knowledge in this course will enable you to develop into a better, happier and more fulfilled leader of yourself, your team and your organisation.
