In our IT careers, we can find ourselves at a crossroads—trying to understand the best way to grow and develop. We want to maximize our professional impact, but we aren’t clear if we should focus on building technical proficiency, industry knowledge, or “people skills.” What does a strong roadmap for our career development look like? What elements should we prioritize?
This 30-minute webinar is part 3 of a 3-part series focused on building your leadership and influence skills. In part 2: we explored “Inspire Thy Stakeholder,” discussing how tweaks in our mindsets and tools can change the way stakeholders feel about working with us. In part 3, we will explore “Inspire Thy Team.” Specifically, we’ll cover 3 key things that build a cohesive team and maximize results— and are applicable whether we have direct responsibility for that team or are leading a cross-functional effort.
