PRESENTATION – Power Skills for Tech Leaders: How to support the shift from IC to people manager / leader in your organisation

  • The gap between individual engineer and tech leader is wider than in most other job functions, which provides unique challenges for people making the leap 
  • What makes an engineer successful as an individual contributor (deep technical knowledge) won’t make them successful as a leader and/or manager.
  • In this talk, Hywel will map out the pathways to leadership and management in tech teams and talk about the skills required at each transition, and how to help develop those in your emerging and existing leaders.
